Workshop: Developing Guidelines for a Non-Borrowing Public Collection with Melbourne Art Library

Sat 12 Mar 2022

This is a past program.
ACCA Reading Space: The Common Room

Find out more about the Reading Space: The Common Room here.

Libraries are unique compared to other collecting institutions like galleries and museums, in that they encourage the lending and circulation of content. But where do libraries draw the line? Who gets to borrow a $5000 book? What does it mean to be ‘rare’ or ‘special’? Who sets the rules of the commons?

Join this collaborative session to critically discuss and workshop guidelines for a non-borrowing collection at the Melbourne Art Library.
