Abstract

This article documents a survey used at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, to answer the question: "How do I know the library's collection is successful as a partner-collaborator to a local, vibrant art scene that favors performative and installation art?" A literature review evaluates changes in collection development praxis from the championing of approval plans by the R2 Consulting team to the emerging ways the collection specialist may direct collaborative use in the community and academy. A carefully conceived acquisition process complemented by engagement strategies ensures the libraries' role as a partner to teaching, learning, and research.
