• SPEC Kit 333: Art & Artifact Management (December 2012)

    This SPEC Kit explores the scale and scope of art and artifact materials held by ARL member libraries, which tools and techniques they currently use to manage these collections, including those used by library staff only and those used to make information about these collections available to the public, and if there is evidence of a convergence of library, archive, and museum practices in the management of these collections.

    It includes collection development policies, guidelines for arranging materials, and examples of how art and artifact collections are described.
