New White Paper: “Prospects and Strategies for Deep Collaboration in the Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums Sector”
From the Abstract:
This paper reports on the findings of a working summit hosted by the University of Miami in January 2016 at which the administrative heads of art museums and libraries from fourteen academic institutions convened to explore the barriers to—and opportunities for—deeper intra-institutional museum-library collaborations. The summit was jointly funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and featured presentations by thought-leaders in the academic galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM) sector. This paper presents a summary of the work, discussions, and outcomes of the summit including recommendations for further effort in the following areas: (1) collaborative practices; (2)shared budget strategies; (3) joint advocacy and advancement; and (4) futureGLAM sector summits.
