Recommendations

Module by: Hilary Ballon, Mariet Westermann. E-mail the authors

Summary: Recommendations of "Art History and Its Publications in the Electronic Age".

The fully stated recommendations at the end of Parts II and III are summarized below.

Images

  • 1: Organize a campaign to break down barriers to access and distribution of images, in all media and at affordable prices, for scholarly research and publication, through the following actions.
    • Work with museums to remove copyright restrictions on images of works currently in the public domain.
    • Create a streamlined, potentially centralized digital image licensing system with low- or no-cost pricing for scholarly use, and with an online order form.
    • Develop a database that centralizes information on available subventions for images and permissions fees.

Electronic Publications

  • 2: Develop electronic extensions of the journals of record, Art Bulletin and the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, and use them to publish a variety of electronically enhanced texts equipped with interactive images.
  • 3: Develop online publication genres and formats that take advantage of museum exhibitions as sites of research and appear during and after the exhibitions.
  • 4: Form a consortium for the publication of art and architectural history online sponsored by the scholarly societies, College Art Association and the Society of Architectural Historians.

University Presses and Libraries

  • 5: Enhance the mission of university presses in terms of knowledge dissemination and scholarly communication rather than book publishing alone, and connect some of their programs more closely with their namesake universities and libraries.
  • 6: Support libraries in their efforts to use the internet to make copyrighted and orphan works available at the lowest possible cost to the widest communities of readers.
  • 7: Encourage university presses to leverage the extant expertise of print-on-demand companies to pursue print-on-demand services for scholarly publications in art history.
