‪Ithaka S+R, a strategic consulting and research service that focuses on the transformation of scholarship in an online environment, has conducted an in-depth study of research practices in art history.

This project is part of Ithaka S+R’s larger Research Support Services Program. The goal of this program is to examine the evolving needs of researchers on a field-specific basis in order to best understand how libraries, visual resource centers, publishers, database providers, and other information services providers meet these needs. The project in art history is jointly funded by the Getty Foundation and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Through interviews with faculty members, curators, museum professionals, graduate students, visual resource professionals, librarians, and others involved in the academic study of art history, Ithaka S+R has explored a wide variety of themes related to research practices. The project examines art historians’ work processes, their use of primary and secondary sources, their publication habits, and their adaptation to the digital environment. Special attention has been given to the impact of technology on research methodologies.

This session will provide an overview of the project findings and a discussion of their implications. The full findings will be published in early 2014 in a report that will be available on the Ithaka S+R website.
