Open access and the Art Library


Published on

A presentation given to my Art Librarianship class that summarized my research paper. It argues that open access is a key for the future of art scholarship. Art History as a discipline is attempting to become more global, but in order for their to be a global discourse scholarship needs to be available without pay-walls. I see the role of the librarian as that of facilitator, encourages art historians to make their work open access, and demonstrating how to find open access materials.
