ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference 2021

In the past decade, the importance of museums, libraries and archives within the UK and Ireland and beyond has been highlighted and debated as a result of rapid social, political and technological change.

The experiences of 2020 have highlighted longstanding issues of inequality. We have experienced enormous, dramatic and global changes in our social and political climate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the increasing awareness of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the worldwide Climate Emergency.

The conference will host discussions on themes that include:

• Critical approaches to art and design librarianship

• Open access/digital approaches and initiatives in the art and design library

• Art and design publishing and libraries in the 2020s

• Future approaches to art librarianship

ARLIS 2021 seeks to address and discuss ways in which art, design and architecture libraries and archives are responding to these challenges in a creative and innovative way, the nature of critical librarianship in this climate, and the future for art librarianship in the light of these developments.
