This special interest group meeting will focus on visual resource professionals that work in, or aspire to work in museums. How have careers in visual resource management evolved with advancements in imaging and cataloging technology? How do we fit into this organization and what skills do emerging VR professionals need to obtain careers in museums? This meeting will address the unique challenges we face, compared to other VRA colleagues, with regard to copyright, user base and archiving.

The meeting will begin with 3 short presentations from museum professionals followed by sixty minutes of open conversation. From shifts in job titles to created or inherited responsibilities, presenters will discuss how they serve users at their institution and how this role has evolved within their institution.
