Call for Papers: "Libraries, archives and museums in dialogue: Improving access to complementary collections"
The Art Libraries and the Subject Analysis and Access Sections invite proposals for the Open Session entitled "Libraries, archives and museums in dialogue: Improving access to complementary collections".
Linked to the IFLA Conference theme, “Libraries in dialogue for change”, the Art Libraries and the Subject Analysis and Access Sections will be hosting a 2-hour Open Session during the 2019 conference in Athens, Greece, in which we would like to discuss how to improve the user’s subject access to our complementary collections, and how professionals can be supported by interlinking objects between different collections through the use of new technologies and tools as well as metadata standards and shared authority data. We would also like to include in our discussion digital format image collections, which play a great role in linking libraries, archives and museums, especially in thematic virtual exhibitions, and lead to new forms of collaboration.
