Beyond traditional collections in visual resources that have a broad appeal to the humanities, special collections that come about due to faculty members’ contributions or research interests have unique content and add significance to a general VR collection. In this session, three speakers will present about special collections at their institutions that were driven by faculty and campus interests. Colette Lunday Brautigam will speak about the Studio Art Major Senior Exhibitions image gallery in Lux, the Lawrence University institutional repository, which contains four images by each graduating studio art major, and the Lawrence University Department of Theatre Arts Productions collection in Shared Shelf Commons (http://www.sscommons.org/openlibrary/welcome.html#3|collections|7729516||Lawrence20University20Department20of20Theatre20Arts20Productions|||), which contains images and programs from theater productions produced by the Department of Theatre Arts. Allan Kohl from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design will speak about practical guidelines for determining whether to accept faculty contributions to a visual resources collection, including the crucial role of the faculty member as participant in the process (see his recent VRA Bulletin article here: http://online.vraweb.org/vrab/vol39/iss3/2/). Jason Roy from the University of Minnesota will speak about image collections contributed by a retired faculty member after 40 years of extensively collecting Indian textiles and related objects (see http://umedia.lib.umn.edu/taxonomy/term/778 and http://umedia.lib.umn.edu/taxonomy/term/769).Sponsored in part by the Department of Art History, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
