Lorenzen, Elizabeth A.
Acquisitions Librarian, v16 n31-32 p27-39 2004
As technology is shaping today's art world, parallel changes are happening in the ways art book collections are identified and acquired. The purpose of this article is to identify the changes transpiring in the worlds of the artist and library acquisitions, and to evaluate the ways in which the changes effected by technological applications in the arts may affect the way that librarians acquire monographic art collections. As artists are constantly finding new ways to challenge definitions of art, so must acquisitions librarians respond to the challenges of the art book market in new and creative ways.
