As posted in a recent instance of the ConsDistList, my lab is conducting an international survey of collections of artist reference materials <https://yalesurvey.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9BmHn1ofTEAjwdn> . To date, we have had a very encouraging response, but mostly from American collections. We are very much interested in international perspectives and would be grateful for help broadening this base. Please forward this appeal to colleagues that might be interested in contributing to this project (and, of course, American colleagues still are highly encouraged to participate). Though we had originally intended to close the survey soon, we will keep it open for a couple more weeks in hopes of increasing the diversity of responses.
As a reminder, the goals of this work are to: 1) To evaluate the potential value of increased access to artist reference materials, 2) to identify potential institutional partners able to share catalog information on the reference samples they possess and 3) to identify a viable model for online dissemination of associated catalog information.
