"ARLIS/NA at Altitude" Managing the Collective Collection Session
At this session, collaborative initiatives were surveyed from the broader library community to rethink how we acquire and manage collections, and explore the profound impact of mass digitization on both activities. Collaborations in the art library community in collections development, shared storage and joint digitization will require detailed knowledge of the overlap and uniqueness of collections. A case study of a collections analysis comparing four New York City art libraries rounded out the panel by providing a model for gathering the business intelligence needed to move forward.
