Instructor:
Michelle Strizever, Photo Archivist, U.S. House of Representatives

Collections of artists’ books tend to be hidden and difficult to access. Artists’ Books DC is a local, in-depth, and independent digital reference tool that increases access and outreach for hidden collections. As a successful tool for reaching researchers, the Artists’ Books DC model can be replicated in other regions.

The workshop will explain the steps necessary to create an in-depth, innovative reference tool about all the artists’ books collections in a region, including: how to research collections, what information to include, who the audience is, how to create the website, how to build community relationships and get feedback, and how to advocate for funding.

Attendees will learn to create social media campaigns that entice researchers to visit. While this workshop focuses on artists’ books digital reference tools, it provides a model of a robust resource for access and outreach that can be mobilized for many types of collections.
