Five years since its inception, the Future of Art Bibliography (FAB) initiative has accomplished a great deal in provoking institutions to imagine the ‘collective collection’ and to develop collaborative methods of work to achieve that goal. FAB has helped to launch three platforms that aggregate content and define a new bibliographic arena for collecting institutions. In each instance, ARLIS/NA member institutions have formed collaboratives and engaged service-providing organizations to develop platforms that collocate new forms of bibliographic records and digital content.

While FAB has maintained its focus on creating an aggregate discovery space for bibliographic records, digitized content, and archived websites, the landscape around the projects continues to shift and evolve. With three trajectories in production mode, FAB faces the question of how these three complementary projects overlap with other national and international projects that also seek to harmonize emerging content with bibliographic discovery. The 2015 FAB session will report on the progress of each of these projects and set them within the context of other national and international collaborative efforts. In addition, the session will discuss long-term strategic goals, business models, and operational sustainability across the FAB initiative projects.
