Slide Librarian 2.0: Image curating in the digital age

London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, London, W1B 0BJ
14 June 2011 13:30-17:00

This half day event, organised by the ARLIS Visual Resources Committee, will explore the changing role of the slide librarian in the digital age. Whilst there are legal barriers to the use of images in education and the museum sector, there are no such technological barriers and it is increasingly difficult for librarians and image curators to support their users within this context. This event will look at positive ways in which we can use technology to provide images to our users.

Speakers will include a slide librarian, a copyright specialist and an academic specialising in eLearning. The afternoon will also include a workshop session using online tools and resources for image management.

This event will be of interest to slide librarians and visual resource curators and other professionals working in HE, art colleges, museums, galleries and art collections, or anyone involved in managing digital images.
