NMWA & AU Partnership

NMWA director Susan Fisher Sterling worked with Helen Langa and Kathe Albrecht to establish a Memo of Understanding between the museum and the university. With this partnership, both institutions hope to strengthen their ties through programs and cooperative efforts, and to further the educational missions of their respective institutions. The Memo of Understanding was signed by Susan Sterling and by University Provost Scott Bass in the spring. We look forward to working with the museum in the future!



University Library & VRC
Fine Arts Library Partnership

Kathe Albrecht and University Librarian Bill Mayer discussed the idea of electronically linking art history fine arts library collection information with the university's online catalog. The library has established similar partnerships with several departments and programs on campus. The GLBT Resource Center, the Career Center, and the Women and Politics Center each partnered with the university library to link their collections. Kathe worked with library staff to establish the new partnership and outline procedures for implementing the cataloging. The library staff uploaded the information to the Voyager online catalog andalthough the art history program fine arts collection will remain a non-lending library, our books are now discoverable through the university library system.
