The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA), New England Chapter, in partnership with ARLIS/NA and ACRL Arts, hosted a free virtual conversation about the state of scholarly communication in arts librarianship on Monday, November 14, 2016, 7:30 pm – 8:30 p.m. EST.
The discussion illuminated the range of scholarly activities that art and visual resources professionals are engaging in, and addressed the process of preparing a research agenda, participating in presentations, or finding alternate avenues in which to engage in scholarly discourse. Panelists spoke about the management and evolution of their own processes, and addressed challenges and perceived barriers to participation.
