Scope Drift: New Directions in Visual Resources

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In project management, “scope creep” describes the continuous expansion of the requirements, mission, and objectives of a project. Although often perceived as a negative, in the fields of art librarianship and visual resources the drifting of professional scope can be both a force driving innovation and an indicator of change. Following up on the successful session on this topic sponsored by the Visual Resources Division (VRD) at the 2016 ARLIS/NA+VRA conference, this panel will present case studies illuminating how visual resources duties are expanding and shifting in digital contexts. In alignment with the topics of interests proposed for the 2017 conference, presentations will address one or more of the following areas: Digital Humanities/Digital Art History Collection Development and Management User Experience Digitization and Preservation of Digital Collections Scholarly Communications, Hannah Marshall will speak about the theory and practice of digital curation as it relates to digital cultural heritage and the expanding role of the 'digital curator', Marian Lambers will discuss case studies from the College of Creative Studies, and Katherina Fostano will present on her visual resource center's responses to changing faculty needs. Panelists will discuss the challenges of addressing new demands from organizations and users, as well as the opportunities for broadening collaborations.
