A Terrible Beauty: Challenges and Opportunities in Art Publishing in the UK — Martin Flynn, Head of Information Services, Word & Image, Victoria and Albert Museum

The Space You Leave Behind is as Important as the Space You Fill: Some Observations on North American Art Publishing — Sandra Brooke, Librarian, Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University

Publishing Trends in Latin America — Gary Ginther presenting for Selene Hinojosa, Collection Development Librarian, Alkek Library, Texas State University

Gary Ginther, Fine Arts Librarian, Ohio University

In this session, academic and museum librarians will discuss art publishing trends in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Latin America. The panel will explore emerging patterns in publishing: print vs. e-book, experimental and traditional publishing, and the challenges and opportunities information professionals face. The speakers will discuss how they advocate for print publications, which continue to be the predominant format for art publishing, as well as how they explore the emergence of the e-resource in the arts.

Art publishing in the UK demonstrates a growth in sales of hard copy books. Martin Flynn will examine the reasons behind this trend together with its implications for art libraries. In addition, he will explore the influence of factors such as public subsidy, library purchasing, and e-publishing models. He will also outline the ways in which the Victoria and Albert Museum is negociating the still-preferable landscape of print publishing, while keeping an eye on emerging print models.

Even as print remains a durable medium for art documentation and artistic expression, mainstream and experimental publishers in North America are increasingly responding to the pressures and rising potential of electronic platforms. Sandra Brooke will share her experience of investigating the possibilities of the electronic platform in her work at Princeton University.

Gary Ginther, presenting for Selene Hinojosa, will discuss current challenges and emerging patterns in his overview of art publishing trends in Latin America, particularly Mexico. The focus will be book fairs and specific publishers for purchasing Latin American books.
