The Art of Change: The Impact of Place and the Future of Academic Art Library Collections
Falls, Sarah; Hatheway, Holly
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v21 n2 p185-195 2015
Academic institutions have long supported stand-alone branch libraries devoted to fine arts, architecture, and other allied fields. As subject specific collecting on campuses has been decentralized by collaborative collection development, consortial borrowing, and the quick availability of materials in both digital and print formats, the need for the physical space of the art library for research has diminished. The authors, both of whom are in administrative positions at ARL art libraries, explore how collections are directly tied to use of space in architecturally significant spaces and conclude by offering suggestions how space can help heighten collections access and emulate greater value on their campuses.
