Randi Millman-Brown, the Visual Resources Curator in the Department of Art History, presented a paper at the VRA annual conference in April 2013.  The session was titled, "Redesigning Visual Resource Facilities for 21st century Challenges".  Also on the panel were colleagues from Smith College, Rhode Island School of Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Harvard University. The session summary: 

Transforming visual resource libraries into modern, digital-savvy Visual Resource centers can be an exciting but complicated process. New spaces can become collaborative learning spaces for faculty and students and be on the forefront of new technologies. Speakers will present their planned or recent upgrades and remodels to show how they have utilized resources available to create new spaces with new uses, discussing topics that take the audience from space design theory to planning and practice.
