Artists’ Records in the Archives: A One Day Symposium – Call for Participation
The archives of many institutions contain artists’ records—documents created by artists that often bear witness to the creative process, as evinced by sketches, doodles, and other notations. Artists’ records differ from other types of records due to their inherent connection to the art object and the art market. In recent years there has been a plethora of symposia and conferences dedicated to artist archives, art history and “the archive,” as well as to the use of archival materials by contemporary artists. While crucial, these investigations have been driven almost entirely by art historians and have not included the perspectives of archivists and special collections librarians. As part of an effort to broaden the discussion surrounding artists’ records, the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York has organized a one day symposium, “Artists’ Records in the Archives,” to be held on October 11, 2011 in conjunction with the New York Public Library. Focusing on the perspective of the information professional, this symposium will address how contemporary artists use artists’ records in their work, the significance of artists’ records in archives for scholars and curators, and how archivists and special collections librarians manage artists’ records in their repositories.
Possible topics or areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
*Artists’ use of other artists’ records
*How archivists manage artists’ records and how this might differ within a museum, estate, gallery, and university setting
*Collecting artists’ records
*Appraisal of artists’ records
*Underdocumented artists and the archives
*Exhibitions and artists’ records
*Artists’ records and the digital environment
*Born digital artists’ records
*Copyright, moral rights, and the artist
*Conversations between archivists, artists, and art historians regarding archives
Date: October 11, 2011
Location: New York Public Library
All individual presentations will be 20 minutes long (10 page paper).
Submissions must include a title, name of author and institutional affiliation, abstract (250 words max), and indication of technological requirements.
Individual papers or entire panel proposals accepted.
A small travel stipend is available. If interested please indicate in the submission.
Deadline for Proposals: Proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2011.

From Records to Data: Seeing and Sharing Digital Cultural Heritage Collections Differently with RecollectionPosted: May 6, 2011
From Records to Data: Seeing and Sharing Digital Cultural Heritage Collections Differently with Recollection
Brooklyn Public Library
Trevor Owens, Digital Archivist with the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) at the Library of Congress, will give a lecture titled “From Records to Data: Seeing and Sharing Digital Cultural Heritage Collections Differently with Recollection” at Brooklyn Public Library’s Dr. S. Stevan Dweck Center for Contemporary Culture on Thursday, May 19th from 3-4:30pm.
Owens will introduce and demonstrate the utility of Recollection, a free open source platform for generating and customizing views (interactive maps, timelines, facets, tag clouds) that allow scholars, librarians and curators to explore digital collections in novel and intuitive ways. This demonstration will show how content stewards can ingest collections from spreadsheets, sets of MODS records, or RSS and Atom feeds and then generate a range of interactive visualizations, including charts and maps, as well as sophisticated faceted browser interfaces for users of their digital collections.
We especially invite students and professionals interested in cultural heritage, digital curation and preservation, information visualization and other similar fields to attend.

Whether you are new to the field or just changing career focus, this e-Forum will provide you with the pointers you need to secure your next position in this continually changing area of librarianship. What can you do to put yourself ahead of the competition? How can you make yourself more visible in the crowded job market? Need a refresher on cover letters and resumes? How about interview basics? Do you know how to best manage your on-line presence while conducting a job search? We will explore these questions and many more with our two hosts: Tiffany Allen, Library HR insider and Erica Findley, a new graduate who recently landed an academic library position.
Tiffany Eatman Allen is the Director of Library Human Resources at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University Library.

*What is an e-forum?*
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it’s free. See a list of upcoming e-forums at:http://bit.ly/upcomingeforum.
Instructions for registration are available at: http://bit.ly/eforuminfo. Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the email list. Participation is free and open to anyone.

The North Carolina Connecting to Collections Project (C2C) will be sponsoring an Emergency & Disaster Preparedness workshop on April 11, 2011 hosted by the Charlotte Museum of History for staff, board members, and volunteers who are interested in preserving and protecting cultural heritage when faced with emergency situations. The workshop will be led by Matthew Hunt, C2C’s Disaster Preparedness Coordinator.
Disasters come in many forms—Natural, Human-generated, Intentional, and Unintentional—and all are capable of causing significant property damage. Through this workshop we will give cultural institutions the tools and training to start their disaster planning and response preparations. We will all face a disaster one day, and our success after it will depend on our preparation for it. This workshop will cover the importance of planning for emergency situations, the elements of a disaster plan and why we need to test existing plans.
The workshop will open with an information session about C2C and NC ECHO; questions, feedback, and networking are encouraged. Participants in the C2C sessions have a unique opportunity to help improve how cultural heritage institutions (museums, archives, libraries, and historic sites) care for a wide variety of artifacts, books, papers, and other objects of our state’s cultural past. C2C project staff wants input on what types of workshops are needed. Additional workshops on collections conservation care and disaster preparedness will be offered in the future.
The North Carolina Connecting to Collections Project is an IMLS grant-funded initiative aimed at helping institutions better care for their collections. A variety of partner organizations have made this project possible: Federation of NC Historical Societies, NC Museums Council, NC Preservation Consortium, State Historic Records Advisory Board, and Society of NC Archivists.
