Upstate New York Chapter of the VRA Meets at the Brush Gallery

Last Friday, the Upstate New York chapter of the Visual Resources Association met for its semiannual meeting at the Brush Gallery.

After a brief business meeting, Jesse Henderson from Colgate described the function of  the  Colgate Visual Resources Library site, and John Hosford talked about the use of Libguides at Alfred University’s School of Art and Design.   Cathy spoke about digital collections at the Brush Gallery, and how we are using CONTENTdm and ARTstor, with emphasis on the Roy Collection of West African Textiles.

At the end of the day, we looked at a selection of textiles — I think the VRA’ers enjoyed seeing the real objects since they work mainly with digital surrogates.
