Abstracts:

Do You See What I See? Teaching Visual Literacy to Undergraduate Students (Tammy Ravas and Megan Stark): This session will share the experience of using visual media from the exhibit Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs to encourage information literacy in undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Montana. By promoting visual literacy as a cornerstone of lifelong learning libraries can help users extend their critical thinking skills into the realm of media while simultaneously introducing the complex issues and challenges posed by visual materials. 
 

Engaging faculty research and teaching through collaborative digital collections (Julia Simic): University of Oregon Libraries has used traditional VR collection development strategies as a foundation for creating all Libraries digital collections. We will discuss the creation of new digital collections based on a collaborative faculty model. 

 

The Role of the Information Professional in an Increasing Digital World (Teresa Slobuski): Research was completed to determine the potential success of finding particular images in fine art databases given knowledge of a student not beyond Art History 101. Given the results, art librarians and visual resource professionals have the opportunity to use their skills and experience to position themselves as an indispensable member of any academic community.

 

Q (a)R(t) Code Project: a Convergence of Media (Liv Valmestad, Architecture and Fine Arts Library, University of Manitoba): Liv Valmestad, through a convergence of media, including Google Maps, Flickr, blogging, and QR codes, has not only created a virtual art gallery accessible to you through your Smart phone, but has also explored augmented reality with Wikitude and FourSquare.
