(Occasional Paper No. 11)

Staffing Standards for Art Libraries and Visual Resources Collections is intended to assist in the determination of staffing needs in art libraries and visual resources collections through institutional self-study and the setting of goals and objectives. The standards present a model that embraces the commonalities found in art liraries and VR collections, while providing descriptions that detail the differences and unique qualities of each. These standards address the process of self-assessment and suggest factors to be considered in determining the needs of the library within an institutional context. These standards replace those written in 1977. They were developed by a special ARLIS/NA task force whose work included a membership survey and the advice of a consultant.
