Over the past five years, the Future of Art Bibliography (FAB) Initiative has served as a vehicle to develop collaborative efforts that aim--via discipline-specific open-access projects--to facilitate 21st century art historical research. The ensuing complementary and collaborative initiatives have been moving toward a shared ideal of making art historical literature in its many formats accessible to scholars worldwide, facilitating research, and furthermore encouraging a new kind of scholarly engagement with the materials.

The politics and diplomacy necessary to engage collaborators and scale such projects will be this year’s focus. Common to all of these projects is an urgent need to productively engage institutions both locally and internationally in a dialogue about the focus of current projects that will foster more collaboration and cooperation. Following this thread, the session will conclude by providing time for presentation and discussion of a proposal for a collective tool for “decision-support” that will assist in identifying both overlapping digital projects and lacunae in order to encourage the development of collaborative as well as unique projects that will further FAB’s overarching goal for the field.
