Similar but Different: Exploring New Avenues in Visual Resources

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Curation of slide librarys may have been the foundation of who the Visual Resources Association was when first created but it has become so much more.  Whether technologists, data collectors, GIS specialist, catalogers, digital humanist, and so many more; this field has changed dramatically.  However, the priciples that guided our field have become increasingly valuable to those outside what was once called normal.  This session showcases a few areas that haven't been historically connected the Visual Resources but provide new directions and oppertunities in our field.
