Moderator: Jill Luedke, Temple University


Effie Patelos, Concordia University, “Research Intersections within Practice: Artists and Librarians”.

Ellen Urton/Blake Belanger, Kansas State Univ., “Design Studio Redux: experiments in embedded librarianship”.

Paul Dobbs/Greg Wallace, Massachuetts College of Art and Design, “JeopARTy Game Show: teaching ethics of appropriation at MassArt”.

As we learn more about the information needs and seeking behavior of studio artists and designers the relationship between librarians and these patrons becomes increasingly more interactive. Using the role of the librarian as the centerpiece of our panel session, each presenter will discuss various ways to preserve and strengthen this relationship. Patelos will re-investigate the panel session Research Intersections within Practice: Artists and Librarians hosted by ARLIS/NA Ontario in March 2011, which discusses the intersection between research and art practice and how librarians can act as facilitators in the creative process. Urton and Belanger outline their ongoing experience in “embedded librarianship” which involves the collaborative partnership between a Visual Resources Librarian and the Department of Landscape Architecture/Regional & Community Planning at Kansas State University. Dobbs and Wallace demonstrate how to address the ethical and legal quagmire of appropriating images through an interactive game show, JeopARTy, developed at Massachusetts College of Art and Desgn.
