The Art libraries journal is published by ARLIS/UK & Ireland for the international art library community and for all who are interested in the documentation of the visual arts, including archivists, collection managers, artists, curators, conservators and art historians.
The scope of the journal is rooted in the long-term concerns of art librarians. This includes the role of art libraries in the age of globalization and the impact of the Internet and digital technology on art documentation; historical collections; specific art library materials such as catalogues, visual resources and artists’ books; copyright and other legislation affecting the activities of the profession; changes in publishing and scholarly communication; and other developments in the converging fields of libraries, museums, archives and visual resources.
Most issues of the ALJ cover a spread of relevant subjects, but some focus on specific themes, such as artists' books, online repositories and catalogues raisonnés, or particular countries or regions.
The journal accepts the following types of article:
- Research Article*
- Book Review
