Moderator: Julie Williamsen, Brigham Young University

Speakers:

Peter Higdon, Ryerson University. "The Evolution of a Photographs Collection at Ryerson University"

Lily Pregill, The New York Art Resources Consortium. "Thinking outside the Box: Migrating the Frick's Photoarchive Collection into Arcade"

Shalimar Fojas White, Dumbarton Oaks. "The Artamonoff Business: Using Collections Research for Outreach and Strategic Communication"

Today's photo archives are dynamic environments that employ creative and collaborative strategies to enhance collections development, outreach, and research capabilities.  This session will explore the recent activities of three photo archives.  Ryerson University has developed a facility and collections that will function as a center for the study and exhibition of lens-based media and will offer a vibrant new option to the city's cultural offerings.  The New York Art Resources Consortium found a way to unite the once disparate Frick Fine Art Reference Library Photoarchive Collection data into a single, shared environment. The Dumbarton Oaks Research Library used their digitization and research of the Nicholas Artamonoff collection for outreach and strategic communication.

Generously sponsored by the Stephen Bulger Gallery.
