Spanning Our Field Libraries: Mindfully Managing LAM Collaborations


Published on

Dr. Katherine Skinner is the Executive Director of the Educopia Institute, a not-for-profit educational organization that builds networks and collaborative communities to help cultural, scientific, and scholarly institutions achieve greater impact.

Multiple efforts are bringing academic museum and gallery leaders together with their peers across archives and libraries, to capture and build upon effective (best) practices across the fields. This session shares information about three such efforts, setting the stage for a discussion on how participation in such cross-sector collaborations can benefit museum and gallery leaders. Participants will leave this session with information on how best to participate in broad collaborations across museums, archives, and libraries to contribute, to compile best practices and common frameworks in support of their own institutional efforts.
