UC Arts Librarians Group Meeting April 28, 2007
Attending: L. Abrams (UCSD) - chair, R. Gore (UCLA), K. Ivy (UCR), S. Koskinen (UCB), S. Moon (UCSB)
We met over a lovely lunch at the South City Kitchen in mid-town
1. Elizabeth Byrne’s (UCB) Digitization Proposal: Early California Architecture Journals.
The group discussed
2. Future meeting of UC Art Librarians.
It has been quite a few years since the group met independent of an ARLIS/NA conference. It may be time for a face-to-face, all day meeting. We believe we have plenty of issues for an agenda, such as approval plans/vendor round table, library instruction to undergraduate art & architecture students, JSTOR dim archive/sending serials to storage, new databases to pursue/consortial licenses, collection space and preservation/conservation issues, remodeling, new, or merging libraries, ARTstor/UC Image Service changes. If we agree to meet, we might see if we could dovetail with another UC-wide meeting, such as the one LAUC-B is hosting Nov. 2, 2007 on the “Academic Library 2.0”. Otherwise we will ask for volunteers to host. The last time we met face-to-face outside of an ARLIS/NA conference was at UCSC.
3. Resource Liaison assignments.
Most likely a topic coming up in the near future.
4. Campus Round Robin.
The group recommended that we do an email round robin to report on news from our libraries and campuses.
