The Art Libraries Society of North America has announced the establishment of an editorial board for the society’s flagship journal, Art Documentation. The board was established as part of the journal’s expanded scope and new publishing partnership with the University of Chicago Press.
“Our new board members are recognized leaders in the visual arts who have substantive experience with art libraries and who are deeply concerned with their sustenance and flourishing,” said Jonathan Franklin, Chair of the ARLIS/NA Communications and Publications Committee. “We are very pleased that they have generously agreed to serve.”
The new board members are:
· Judy Dyki, Editor, Art Documentation (ex officio)
· Susan M. Allen, Director, California Rare Book School, UCLA Department of Information Studies, Los Angeles, CA
· Jonathan Brown, Carroll and Milton Petrie Professor of Fine Arts, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, New York, NY
· Clive Phillpot, Fermley Press, London, UK and former Director of the Library, Museum of Modern Art, NY
· Inge Reist, Chief of Research Collections and Programs, Frick Art Reference Library, New York, NY
· Lucile Trunel, Chef du secteur Art, Service Littératures orientales et art, Département de Littérature et Art, Direction des Collections, Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris, France
· Roxana Velasquez, Executive Director, San Diego Museum of Art
· Jayne Wark, Professor of Historical and Critical Studies, Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Published twice yearly, Art Documentation features peer-reviewed research, case studies, and historical articles that provide valuable perspective on the issues and challenges unique to the field. With its move to the Press, the journal’s electronic edition will be included along with all of Chicago’s journals in JSTOR’s Current Scholarship Program and in JSTOR’s back file archive. Expanded indexing and archiving, as well as search and citation-linking functionality in a new full-text HTML format, will make electronic content more discoverable and useful. The print edition will feature a new layout and an exciting new cover.
The first issue under the new partnership (vol. 31, no. 1) will publish spring 2012. For more information, visit the journal’s website www.journals.uchicago.edu/adx.
