Library as Incubator Project Launched by SLIS Students

Posted by Lisa Strand on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 in Libraries in the News
The co-founders of the Library as Incubator Project have launched the project’s virtual “hub,” www.libraryasincubatorproject.org.  Three UW-Madison SLIS students are the project managers: Laura Damon-Moore, Erinn Batykefer, and Christina Endres. 

TheLibrary as Incubator Project seeks to learn how artists (writers, visualartists and performing artists) use libraries in the research, creation andpromotion of their artistic work. The presenters are in the process of creatinga web resource that highlights artists and projects that have been"incubated," in part, by library collections, spaces and/or staff. Itwill also serve as a resource for librarians who want to better serve artistspatrons through programming, collections, and partnerships.
Damon-Moore, Batykefer and Endres are presenting a WLA Conference program about their project  November 4 in Milwaukee at Hilton MilwaukeeCity Center, 10:30 a.m.
Learn more about the Library as Incubator Project at the conference, or subscribe online via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS feed on the website to getupdates and announcements.
