Abstracts:

It's not you, it's Mimi! : Building an Institutional Repository Specifically for the Arts Community (Anne Hepburn, Jason Williams): Anne Hepburn, MLS, and Jason Williams, web programmer, will be discussing their collaborative process for the design and build of an institutional repository and image management system at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. They will show a demonstration of the product, called Mimi, and discuss the creative process involved. 

 

Beyond Catalogues and Image Databases—Leading a Museum-Wide Collections Management System Committee (Eric Wolf): As the information landscape changes, librarians and VR professionals have the chance to leverage their unique skill-sets beyond traditional roles.  Co-chairing the Collection Management System Committee at the Menil Collection has been both a difficult and rewarding opportunity to demonstrate the continued relevance of our knowledge of organizing information and technologies.

 

On Re-housing Special Collections of the Alternative Spaces (Ryan Evans): Ryan Evans is Curatorial Associate and Archivist at White Columns, New York’s oldest alternative space, as well as a 2011 MLS Candidate at Pratt Institute.  The research for this paper informed an open source digitization effort for the organization’s archive.

 

Rethinking the Reference collection (Anna Fishaut): The Stanford University Art & Architecture Library has developed a new reference collection model which reflects current usage and publishing trends, and which augments the traditional definition of “reference book.”

 

[KOHA-llaboration: Utilizing the resources of the open-source community to migrate the ANS library catalog (Elizabeth Hahn): This project relied heavily on collaboration from in-house, out-sourced, and open-source options to migrate a locally developed database to a proper Integrated Library System. - CANCELLED]
