Feedback form is now closed.
This year has changed how arts librarians provide support and outreach to students, faculty, and researchers. Due to the pandemic and library closures, many arts librarians in academic libraries quickly pivoted their services to a virtual environment. With the changing nature of the pandemic, communication and outreach is critical in relaying library services and research support. This lightning talk session will highlight six academic arts librarians and how they have adapted their outreach methods and support online. Given that this session is a collaboration between ARLIS/NA and the ACRL/Arts Section, the lightning round presentations included represent the varied disciplines within the umbrella of visual and performing arts librarianship in academic libraries.

Moderators: Tiffany Bailey, Courtney Baron, Tess Colwell and Leah Sherman

Speakers: Anna Clare Harper, Megan Lotts, Marty Miller, Katy Parker, Sha Towers and Joshua Yang.
