Feedback form is now closed.
In Spring 2020 the ARLIS/NA Exhibitions SIG created an Exhibition Standards Task Force to produce industry-wide standards for library exhibitions. In this session, representatives of the task force will present on the process and methodology used to inform the creation of the standards. Special collections librarians, archivists, art librarians, and other stewards of artifacts and rare materials will gain a comprehensive view of the areas concerning the planning and execution of exhibitions that could be applicable to their own setting, including philosophy and policy, curating, the use of digital technology, issues of diversity and inclusion, facilities considerations, conversation, marketing, financial, and evaluation. Participants in this session will also have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the Task Force representatives to help refine the standards in advance of final publication on the ARLIS/NA website in later 2021.
