    Abstract:
    Metropolitan museums and top tier research institutions are often the focus when discussing art librarianship. This leaves information professionals of smaller, non-traditional institutions, such as community colleges, out of the conversation when discussing issues of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility to art and special collections. Two librarians from Houston Community College, who have found themselves dealing with rare, special collections without the title of “Art Librarian”, will speak to the challenges and opportunities these institutions present to the larger art and museum community. This panel will examine the underlying issues when it comes to serving underfunded and under-resourced institutions beyond traditional research institutions, and discuss proactive ways in which the profession can better support these institutions to preserve their collections, legacy, and support issues of equity through universal access.
