ArLiSNAP (Art Library Students and New ARLIS Professionals) and VREPS (Visual Resources Association Emerging Professionals and Students) are joining forces to host a virtual conference this autumn! The conference is titled "New Media Challenges and Solutions for Art Information Professionals", and will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2018. This is an excellent opportunity for those who cannot be physically present at annual conferences.

New Media Challenges and Solutions for Art Information Professionals  

New media art, objects, and scholarly projects in the digital realm are challenging our traditional definitions and methodologies for collection, preservation, and research. We are pleased to welcome Coral Salomón, Digital Initiatives Librarian at the University of Pennsylvania, who will present a keynote lecture.

The keynote lecture will be followed by an hour of presentations and a period of questions and conversation with our panel of speakers and conference attendees. Our presenters will be: 

  • "No More Reality: Philippe Parreno and the Difficulties of Cataloging New Media," Kat Buckley, University of Chicago 
  • "Surveying Digital Media Production Workflows in Arts Institutions," Jean Moylean, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 

Michelle Wilson, ArLiSNAP Conference Planning Liaison and Digital Publishing Librarian at Columbia University, will moderate the discussion. Any questions about the event can be addressed to Michelle at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
