Moderator: Heather Slania, National Museum of Women in the Arts


Sidney Berger, Peabody Essex Museum. "The Art Museum Libraries Symposia and the Changing Landscape for Museum Libraries and Librarians"

Sasha Suda, Art Gallery of Ontario. "The Evolving, and Essential, Role of Art Libraries in the Practice of Emerging Curators"

Ken Soehner, Metropolitan Museum of Art. "American art museum libraries: wishful thinking or strategic alignment"

With the accelerating pace of technological change and reoccurring economic crises, museum libraries and librarians are continually re-envisioning our processes, values, and objectives. This session will introduce the issues addressed at the Art Museum Libraries Symposia, investigate the positive outcomes of new technologies for curators, and interrogate the art library's position within its parent
institution and the ideals we (knowingly or unknowingly) hold on to. Change might be the only constant but through collaboration, embracing new technologies, and examining our presuppositions we can learn to navigate the changing horizon.

Generously sponsored by Aux Amateurs de Livres.
