Presentation: Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative
With funding from the Getty Foundation’s Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI), the Art Institute of Chicago has sought to transform how a scholarly collections catalogue is created and delivered. What are the advantages of an online scholarly catalogue? What are the concerns? And how does this potential new model in publishing affect art librarianship? Susan Augustine, Head of Reader Services at the Art Institute of Chicago’s Ryerson and Burnham Libraries, will preview the Art Institute’s digital catalogues and discuss the creation process, the challenges, and the many potentials of this new format.
*Q&A for Susan (10 minutes)
