Art and architectural scholars have long relied on a set of discipline-based bibliographic resources to support their research. In recent years, the dissolution of some of these resources coupled with shifts in research interest has prompted leaders in our field to redefine what is meant by a disciplinary ‘bibliography’, and to seek an innovative approach for creating a flexible future bibliography for our field. Librarians, scholars, publishers, and information technologists have gathered to participate in an international community-driven initiative that envisions a global approach to capturing an ever-evolving definition of what is meant by ‘bibliography’ and as a practical matter, to form the Future of Art Bibliography (FAB) Initiative. It is clear from these discussions that scholarly behaviors in our field often require research in both deep and narrow disciplinary channels, as well as mechanisms to explore in more broadly interdisciplinary literature.The FAB Initiative strives to use advanced technologies to bring  diverse publication types together in a unified discovery and use environment. This session will provide an update on the FAB Initiative and some projects in cooperative digitization, aggregated bibliographic portals, and web-archiving.
