Join us as we discuss the arts in the library. Through presentations and discussion, we’ll cover arts librarianship, museum resources, open access images, engaging artists in the community, arts-related instruction at the library, and funding. We will also discuss resources, challenges, and best practices.

 

We’ll meet from 10:00 to 10:30 am for coffee and networking, then 10:30 am to 12:30 pm for presentations and discussion.

 

We are pleased to welcome these presenters:

Amy Kilkenny
