How do we Shelve It? The Place for Vendor Provided Electronic Titles in Art and Architecture Collections - Organizer: New York School of Interior Design

Moderator: Shalimar Abigail Fojas White, Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection

Speakers: Susanne Javorski, Wesleyan University; Jennifer Friedman, Harvard Graduate School of Design; Sarah Falls, New York School of Interior Design; Stephanie Frontz, University of Rochester


Abstract: In an age of rapidly expanding electronic content, Ebooks, music, television shows and movies are all easily obtained and viewed on portable handheld devices. With the ease of access our patrons experience at home and in their public libraries, it is no wonder that they expect the same level of access to research content. Scholarly content, however, is mostly still relegated to the small frame of the internet browser, a model which severely limits access
and transformative use with ever evolving technologies such as the IPad. Content for art and architecture research is further complicated by copyright restrictions that may require withholding images from scholarly journals and publications.

In art and architecture libraries, the image is central to research. Large catalogs that contain beautiful color reproductions of paintings or detailed architectural drawings, may not translate
well to 1024 x 768 pixels, or the black and white screen of a Kindle. The format, either electronic or print, can drive collection development of these titles and either limits or expands
access. In this session, four librarians will explore collection development and other inherent issues around Ebook and EJournal titles at their institutions. Susanne Javorski, Art and Reference Librarian, Wesleyan University, will discuss consortial Ebook content provided through a grant funded project on collaborative collection development, addressing image quality and what is not collected due to this. Jennifer Friedman, Librarian for Collection Resources and Access, Frances Loeb Library, Harvard Graduate School of Design will discuss selection criteria for a large
architecture library that also has access to the local university press Ebook titles. Sarah Falls, Director of the Library at the New York School of Interior Design will discuss how individual
selection of titles drives access and how open titles can be integrated into the catalog of an Arts and Design School Library. Stephanie Frontz, Art Librarian, University of Rochester, will discuss the problems of copyright and whose responsibility is it to maintain access to critical portions of academic articles (i.e. the image.)
