50th Annual ARLIS/NA Conference
April 5 @ 9:00 am - April 9 @ 5:00 pm
April 5 – 9, 2022 – Chicago, IL
Join the CollectionSpace team as they partner with OCAD University, Rhode Island School of Design, Harvard University Graduate School of Design & the Western States Art Federation to present a joint panel discussion titled: “The Power of Consortia”.
In the virtual age, it is critical to find new ways to engage patrons online with our collections. This requires new ways of collaboration and a focus on flexibility, and accessibility in how we present our materials as a resource. The panel will share stories of how people are accessing collections digitally, and how the consortium model amplifies the power of scale to increase accessibility across these fields of study that can both pinpoint and expand networks of data.
The Power of Consortia panel will focus on the use of new technologies and modes of interaction as a springboard for building greater accessibility to online repositories; and empowering institutions that participate in these consortia to serve their GLAM community with extensive resources.
