This is the blogsite of the Arts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Library Association. (See the “About Arts” page for more information about the section.) It is meant to be an environment for dialogue about Section activities and about any topic in arts librarianship that is of interest to the contributors.
The blog was conceived and created by the Section’s Technology in the Arts Committee and is now an ongoing project of the Membership & Outreach Committee.
Who can contribute?
This blog is freely accessible on the Web and anyone may comment on postings. Anyone with a professional interest in arts librarianship may post to the blog upon approval by the blog moderator. Contact the moderator to request participation; see the “How Do I Join?” page for more information. All contributors may initiate relevant discussions that may be of interest to readers. There are a number of posting categories (Technology in the Arts, Dance Librarians Discussion Group, etc.) that reflect the committee and discussion group structure of the Arts Section: these are created for postings related to those topics, and may be edited by the corresponding committee chairs and discussion group moderators. Other categories may be created upon request. Please see the page, “Policies for Contributors and Commentors,” for additional information. All postings and comments are approved by the blog moderator before they are published.
