The Frick Art Reference Library’s Bibliography of BIPOC Artists, Collectors, and Dealers is a research guide and public tool through which materials that relate to individuals of underrepresented identities in the Library’s collections can be made more discoverable. Mary Seem, Acquisitions Lead, and Michelle McCarthy-Behler, Reference Lead, will give a lightning talk to discuss the ways in which the Reference Working Group at the Library identified items for inclusion and created a framework in which to organize materials within the bibliography, as well as the resources used for terminology construction.
12:30 - 12:40 Karen Wang MLIS Candidate, Pratt Institute
Many academic libraries are striving to highlight collection materials that center a diversity of individuals and communities who are traditionally marginalized in their fields. I will present about using LibGuides for this purpose, and will share common practices and recommendations based on an environmental scan of research guides developed by libraries at academic institutions primarily focused on art and design.
12:40 - 12:50 Megan N. Liberty, Arts Writer, Editor, and Archivist, Co-Founder of Book Art Review
Book Art Review is a new criticism initiative through the Center for Book Arts that hopes to raise the quality and quantity of book art criticism.
