ARLIS/NA Launches Learning Portal

The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) announces the launch of its Learning Portal, which includes on-demand access to the Society’s webinars, virtual conferences and educational initiatives. The Learning Portal provides opportunities for ARLIS/NA members and interested others to participate in online learning modules focused on current issues most important to the art library community in our fast-paced and changing environment.

The ARLIS/NA Learning Portal presents the Society’s first virtual conference — four compelling “Art + Politics” themed tracks recorded at the 2014 Washington, DC annual conference are now available along with additional supporting materials:

• Fostering Creativity: Collaborative Projects in Open Access: Enhancing Discoverability of Your Collections via DPLA
• Power and Agency: Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Art Historians
• Of, By and For the People: The Politics of Change: Digital Humanities
• Preserve and Protect : Picturing Dissent: Documentation of Labor Movements’ Actions from the Late 19th Century to the Present

In addition, the Learning Portal provides on-demand access to ARLIS/NA’s popular lunchtime chat series and webinars such as the spring 2014 ACRL co-presented webinar, “Perspectives in Art Publishing: Past, Present, Future and Open.”
