    Providing a survey of open access publishing in the arts, Patrick Tomlin will give us an overview of the two dominant "flavors" of open publishing, the open access journal and the institutional or disciplinary repository, examining successful examples of both in disciplines like art history, architecture and design. We will look at what obstacles are slowing the uptake of open access publishing by scholars in the arts, and what possible roles the art librarian might play in raising awareness of open access and other pressing scholarly communication issues. Speaker: Patrick Tomlin, Head of the Art + Architecture Library, Virginia Tech *This is an encore presentation of Patrick's ARLIS/NA 2010 Boston conference presentation.

Ellen Petraits will discuss concept mapping, a visual exercise she uses in library instruction at the Rhode Island School of Design ( RISD ) to help students identify and develop research topics in art and design courses. (*This is an encore of Ellen's ARLIS /NA 2010 Boston conference presentation.) Peter Blank promotes the artistic qualities of special collections materials to attract student artists to Stanford University’s Art and Architecture Library, but also participates in MFA studio critiques across campus to bring the library to the artists.
