From Leigh Hallingby, SLA-NY Chapter President <LHallingby AT sorosny.org>:
SLA-NY is delighted to announce a joint program with ARLIS (Art Libraries Society of North America) for members of both organizations.
Please join us for a presentation about two new educational resources recently made available by IFAR (International Foundation for Art Research) on its expanded, redesigned website www.ifar.org. Dr. Sharon Flescher, Executive Director of IFAR and Editor-In-Chief of the IFAR Journal, will make the presentation on:
Linked bibliographic databases of published catalogues raisonnés and of catalogues in preparation
A major new resource on Art Law and Cultural Property. A quote from the Art Law and Cultural Property section of IFAR's website: "International Cultural Property Ownership and Export Legislation (ICPOEL) and Case Law and Statutes (CLS) will help users navigate the increasingly complex and abundant body of legislation and case law regarding the acquisition and ownership of artworks."
A reception co-sponsored by ARLIS/NY and SLA/NY will follow in the museum's Watson Library, which is normally only for staff and scholarly researchers.
Place: Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fifth Avenue @ 82nd Street, New York, NY
In the Art Study Room in the Uris Education Wing on the south side of the museum. Please enter the museum by the ground floor doors at 81st Street, not the main stairs at 82nd, and pick up your entry button at the Group Desk in the Carson Family Hall; it's then only a few steps to the Art Study Room.
Date: Friday, January 22, 2010
Time: 3:30-5:00 PM for the lecture and reception.
There is no charge for this event.
RSVP's: Nancy Mandel at nancy.mandel AT metmuseum.org
Please note that the Museum is open until 9 PM on Fridays, so participants at the ARLIS/SLA event are welcome to stay to view the exhibits.
We look forward to seeing you at the Met!
See this event on the NJSLA Chapter Calendar.
