The current economic downturn has adversely impacted many visual resources collections and art libraries, but there are ways to advocate for these important facilities and to demonstrate that image and information professionals actively contribute to an institution's mission and technological future by providing necessary expertise, assets, services, and learning spaces. This roundtable will bring together visual resources professionals from a cross-section of institutions who have recently experienced transformative change to discuss strategies for positively coping with negative impacts on professional lives and the status of visual resources facilities. They will address what was learned from such experiences, recommend actions to take, and provide a variety of possible scenarios which can lead to successful outcomes. Ample time will be given to questions from the floor and allowed for audience participation.
