Drawing on research or case studies, panelists present approaches to collection development, arrangement and description, reference services, donor relations, or preservation that have led to productive collaboration with artists in support of a repository or archival project. Panelists consider the role of technology in documenting creative processes in performing arts (dance and theater), visual arts (animation, film direction, and new media), and creative writing, while sharing their expectations for creative arts archives of the future.
