Case Studies Sessions showcase participants projects in short presentations followed by a break-out to tables for group discussion and demonstration.
Reaching out to Readers: Launching a Successful Book Club (Susan Augustine): Come hear what the Art Institute of Chicago's Libraries have done to attract a devoted book club. Sample reading guides and program descriptions will be distributed at the talk.
Publications from Western European Art Foundations (Lindsay King): Western European art foundations and their publications will be highlighted as under-recognized resources that offer unique programs and perspectives for research libraries.
The “liberty of the compiler”: catalogue raisonné as metaphor for collaborative design (Adam Lauder): I review some of the applications which compilation principles originally developed in the context of the eighteenth-century catalogue raisonnés have found in the prototype IAINBAXTER&raisonnE: an online catalogue raisonné developed in collaboration with York University and the Art Gallery of Ontario as well as an interdisciplinary team of researchers and the artist.
Analysis of University Press Production in Art and Art History, 1991-2007 (Henry Pisciotta; James Frost): This rigorously statistical study examined the monographic output of university presses in the visual arts and architecture at a level of detail meaningful for specialists in these disciplines.
Leveraging OA: Phase II (Sonja Staum): Open access scholarly publication across the arts and humanities offers important opportunities for publication in the field of art and new media. Working with faculty from the IUPUI School of New Media and Informatics, the Herron Library has taken a lead role to launch a peer-reviewed, open access scholarly publication covering art, design, and the media arts, The International Review of the Media Arts, (IRMA). This session is a follow up to the presentation ‘Leveraging OA: Creating and publishing a hybrid scholarly journal’, Boston, MA, 2010, and will cover the journal’s continued development including the publication management, technology, and outreach.
