About this Report:
Academic art collections support the research, teaching and discovery of art information in institutions of higher education. Art information professionals serve as teachers and research partners within the arts community on campus. Changes within academic librarianship and higher education have implications for academic art librarianship and the continuing needs of patrons. The ongoing need for subject expertise and liaison librarianship in arts disciplines is critical to the production of scholarly and creative works. This report examines the current trends and issues facing academic art libraries and provides recommendations for librarians and administrators.
