Sharing/Shaping the Wealth: Collaborative Ways Museums, Libraries, and Archives Collections Can Further Photographic Research
What can researchers in other fields discover when libraries and museums begin to collaborate? This panel will focus on innovative examples of collaboration and accessibility between museums and libraries, and on the effects they have had on teaching and scholarship. Collaborations involving digitization, online presentations of shared visual materials, and community efforts to move beyond museum and library walls will be a focus of this panel.
