UB chapter of the Special Libraries Association is planning an upcoming field trip! We will be visiting the library at the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. The G. Robert Strauss, Jr. Memorial Library is the primary research and information center at the Albright Knox Art Gallery. This specialized library collects, preserves, and provides access to a number of resources related to the arts, with a specific focus on modern and contemporary art. With over 45,000 titles (and a pretty cool Gallery Archive), it is one of Buffalo’s premier research institutions for information regarding the visual arts and artistic culture!
This library is so special that visitation is typically reserved just for gallery affiliates and members. We hope that many of you will take advantage of this unique opportunity and join us for the tour! We will be meeting at 3: 00 pm on April 4th (Friday) in front of the main entrance to the Gallery (Elmwood side). Parking in the Albright Knox lot will be free because of Gusto at the Gallery on Friday evenings. You do not have to be an official member of SLA to join us—anyone is welcome!
