George Kapelos and Susan Patrick, Ryerson University. “Image & Text Experience: Special Collections in Libraries and Archives.” 

Chella Vaidyanathan, Johns Hopkins University. “Integrating Visual Literacy in Rare Books Sessions.”

Special Collections, including Rare Books, are a valuable source of visually interesting objects, and should be a natural match for students in arts, design, architecture, and other academic programs, however it is frequently the case that these collections get underutilized. This session will present three various approaches to incorporating the library’s special collections, including a an outreach project piloted at NCSU libraries that allowed for student interaction with rare materials, a case study of the utilization of the Ryerson University Library’s Canadian Architect Magazine photography archives for an undergraduate architecture course assignment, and the integration of rare books into IL sessions in order to promote visual literacy at John Hopkins University.

Generously sponsored by University of Toronto Mississauga Library and supported by the ARLIS/NA Alternative Voices Fund.
