Something old and something new: building a special collection of artists’ books
collection development, libraries, artists' books
This poster will examine how library staff at a Canadian university built a special collection of artists’ books in a very short time, with a limited budget, in order to support the Fine Art and Design Studies programs. The collection was built from newly-discovered forgotten files, from a careful examination of the existing library holdings, from purchases through used-book suppliers, and from supplementation with new books.
Presented on March 21, 2015 at the ARLIS/NA 43rd Annual Conference held at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A.
