It’s great to see so many of you signing up to attend the upcoming ARLIS/ANZ conference.

A couple of reminders:

If you wish to join us for Welcome Drinks- please indicate this when you register by selecting the ticket Welcome drinks @ O Bar. The magnificent O Bar is a revolving bar, on the 47th Floor of Australia Square. Panoramic views of the city of Sydney at sunset will be on offer! If you neglected to choose this option when you registered you can simply go back into the conference registration page: 

http://arlis.org.au/event/8-2016-arlis-anz-conference-the-persistence-of-the-real

click on register, put in your details and choose a ticket for Welcome drinks @ O Bar.

And a reminder to note your name on bank transfer payments for either membership or the conference. One of our tasks is to marry bank payments to conference registrations- so having a name attached to the transfer makes it that much easier. 

Note that early bird prices are available until 16 October.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the conference.

Compactus shelf dividers

Following on from my post about the compactus units I thought I would also note that the Art Gallery of NSW library has a number of new boxes of compactus shelf dividers for those that might need them. See accompanying photograph.

 

Steven Miller

Compactuses available at a very reasonable price

The National Music Library at 1 Oxford Street are moving premises. They have some old compactuses (still in good working order) that are available for purchases at very good prices. Here are the details:

 

“Matthew”

6 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

2 bays per face @ 900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 6600mm (L) x 1950mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 126 lineal metres (all bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,000

“Mark”

7 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

3 bays per face @ 900/900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 7500mm (L) x 2800mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 221.4 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,770

“Luke”

7 double-faced mobile units

4 bays per face @ 900/750/750/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 6700mm (L) x 3500mm (W) x 2000 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900/750mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 184.8 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 4 storage levels (400mm high))

Price = $1,480

“John”

8 double-faced mobile units

4 bays per face @ 900/750/750/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 7300mm (L) x 3500mm (W) x 2000 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900/750mm (W) x 375mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 219 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 5 storage levels (330mm high))

Price = $1,750

“Simon”

3 double-faced mobile units + 2 single-faced fixed plinths

3 bays per face @ 900/900/900mm

Compactus dimensions = 3800mm (L) x 2800mm (W) x 2400 (H)

Shelf dimensions = 900mm (W) x 350mm (D), adjustable

Current storage capacity = 92.7 lineal metres (most bays currently set up with 4 storage levels (510mm high))

Price = $740

Luke and John can be joined together to form one very long compactus. The prices are negotiable – we would definitely consider reducing them even further. All compactuses need to be dismantled, transported and reassembled at your own cost. All compactuses require false flooring with tracks – the current false flooring and tracks are in poor condition but may be taken together with the compactuses if desired.

The compactuses should be empty and available in the last week of September (26 to 30 September). After 30 September, there will no longer be access to our current offices and the compactuses will be removed and discarded by the building owners when they “make good” the space.

For those of you wondering if your membership is due or not prior to the conference- you should receive a reminder email about two weeks before your membership expires. However we did encounter some website glitches in recent months.

it is possible to log in and click on the TAB labelled FOR MEMBERS- this will show your subscription history. We have requested a new TAB for Subscription History be added and this will be coming online very soon.

And the good news is that conference registration will open early next week. The program has now been added and I will let everyone know when registration is open.

NYARC Discovery (http://discovery.nyarc.org<http://discovery.nyarc.org/>) is a new research tool from The New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), consisting of the libraries of the Brooklyn Museum, the Frick Art Reference Library, and The Museum of Modern Art. We are happy to introduce the integration of two important collections into NYARC Discovery - the NYARC web archives collections and images from the Frick Art Reference Library's Photoarchive<http://www.frick.org/research/photoarchive>.

Web Archives: Researchers can now discover web archives along with books, journal articles, auction catalogs, traditional archives and a host of other materials while performing a single search in NYARC Discovery. Given the ephemeral nature of digital content, web archives are becoming increasingly important to document the scholarly and cultural record, making it essential to make them easily accessible to users. The NYARC web archives include six thematic collections and the consortium's institutional website collections:

*       Art Resources

*       Artists' Websites

*       Auction Houses

*       Catalogues Raisonnés

*       New York City Galleries

*       Restitution of Lost or Looted Art

*       Brooklyn Museum

*       The Frick Collection

*       The Museum of Modern Art

*       New York Art Resources Consortium

A search in NYARC Discovery defaults to include a single full-text search result from the NYARC web archives collections. Links to the full web archives result set are provided for further exploration on the Archive-It interface<https://archive-it.org/organizations/484>.

Each web archives collection continues to expand with the addition of new web resources. If you would like to nominate a website for consideration for inclusion in one of these collections, please submit our online nominations form<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1SsYxDN-N8O6PWTPTNhKGlOEKareMIlM3EMJuRG

MAu7E/viewform>. To learn more about the consortium's web archiving program, visit http://www.nyarc.org/content/web-archiving.

Photoarchive: The Frick Art Reference Library's Photoarchive is a study collection of more than one million photographic reproductions of works of art from the fourth to the mid-twentieth century by artists trained in the Western tradition. As of summer 2016, nearly 200,000 catalog records and over 75,000 digital images are accessible through NYARC Discovery.

Cataloging and digitization of this collection is ongoing. A fun way to explore the collection is using the Virtual Browse feature, where researchers can now digitally browse the Photoarchive image files.

Built on ExLibris Primo technology, NYARC Discovery was launched earlier this year and continues to be developed to unite scholarly resources into a single search environment. NYARC Discovery is made possible through the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

NSW Chapter Meeting 1 April 2016

The last NSW Chapter Meeting was held on 1 April at the National Insitute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).

NIDA premises has recently undergone extensive refrubishment. ARLIS/ANZ member and NIDA Library Manager Ross Bruzzese kindly hosted the meeting. Ross also conducted an interesting and informative tour of both the library and the new additions to the NIDA campus.

 

Paul Reynolds

Library Manager

I am pleased to announce that the AGL Shaw Research Library at the National Gallery of Victoria has selected OCLC WorldShare Management Services as its library management system. Our online catalogue is available at the following url:

http://ngvlibrary.worldcat.org

We have incorporated records for our auction catalogue holdings into the catalogue, a collection that was not previously searchable outside the Library.  We have also included our entire serial and artist file holdings into the database – not all of this data has been available through Libraries Australia in the past so we are excited to make our full holdings information available to the art library community.

The NGV’s Shaw Research Library was established in 1968 and holds a rich collection of books, serials, ephemera and auction catalogues that documents the NGV’s State Art Collection. These resources are available to researchers for use within the Library by appointment.
