The art image has always inspired investigation, discussion and response. As an art librarian, I find myself in the path of the digital movement every day. I work to maintain academic tradition, while simultaneously leading faculty and students to new ways of finding and utilizing information.

Occasionally I follow, as the opportune use of technology is the result of an ongoing effort that involves a certain measure of give and take. The library will always be on the cutting edge of new technology, my goal has been to find it’s best fit for academic work.
