24 Jun 2019 10:01 AM | Doris Cardenas (Administrator)

On Wednesday June 19th, eight members of the Chicago Area Archivists paid a visit to the Visual Resources Center at the University of Chicago. Staff members Bridget Madden and Kat Buckley gave an insightful tour of the Imaging Lab and explained how they handle their vast collection of slides and the equipment they use to digitize. 




Later in the afternoon members were taken to a classroom where Bridget illustrated the front and back end of LUNA, which is the main database for art images used by the university. Kat illustrated how she uses social media in order to promote the department among faculty and students.

 

The event concluded with a Q&A session and a lively discussion on challenges members face and how they approach their collections. Thank you to Bridget and Kat for being fantastic hosts and providing snacks and beverages during the event and also thank you to all who attended!
