The Association of Collegiate Schools of
Architecture (ACSA) Conference is always held
concurrently with the AASL meeting
  • 550 to join the ACSA
  • 150 to attend the conference
  • Relations are strained between ACSA and AASL the
    former demands substantial funds to make
    conferences self-supporting the latter regards
    policies as penny wise, pound foolish
  • Ignacio San Martin, Laura Hollengreen, and Jason
    Vollen were UA presenters at the ACSA conference.
  • Conference theme was Getting Real Design Ethos
    Now
  • Keynote speaker Shigeru Ban of Tokyo, Japan

The Knowlton School of Architecture at Ohio State
University
16
Another view of the school
17
Interior Space library is on the top two floors.
18
As can be seen here, the library is surrounded by
glass.
19
Library floor plan much longer and skinnier than
they would have liked.
20
Library interior Special Collections and
glass-covered stacks are on the top floor.
21
Roof garden adjacent to the library top floor a
theme that will repeat itself during our tour of
the SLC Public Library.
22
The library is famous for its collection of
designer furniture.
23
On our way to our first tour look both ways
before crossing intersections!
24
If not at an intersection, use these flags to
keep motorists from killing you.
25
Artspaces Pierpont warehouse renovation
26
Artspace
  • Artspace is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit community
    development organization founded in 1980 and
    working to revitalize neighborhoods by creating
    mixed-use projects that incorporate affordable
    housing, cultural amenities, and commercial
    spaces.
  • Artspace projects are catalysts for revitalizing
    the neighborhood and spurring further
    development. Artspace projects contribute to the
    arts and culture of the community by providing
    affordable artist studios and galleries. The
    projects also create synergy between the artists,
    nonprofit agencies and residents living and
    working in Salt Lake City.

27
The Art Access Gallery in the Artspace Pierpont
complex
28
Exhibit seen Quinn Jacobsons wet-plate
collodion photography. The process was
abandoned, and, in a lot of ways, I feel that the
people who I photograph are abandoned as well.
29
The tour continues to an old warehouse renovation
where railroad cars used to park inside.
30
Skylights have been cut in the railroad car space.
31
Soon the space will be ready for occupancy.
32
The professionals (and two paraprofessionals)
gather for a group photo by another Artspace
apartment renovation.

  • UNLV Survey
  • Background and discussion topics
  • Research Log Project
  • Rationale for a research log
  • Goals of research in the academic setting
  • Categories of the log
  • Information needed or topic being researched
  • Date of searching activity
  • Tool or source used to find/research
  • Type of search conducted and search terms used
  • Results (and explanation if relevant) along with
    appropriate citations
  • Evaluation of the findings or of the search
    process
  • Tips in developing the research and information
    log
  • Criteria upon which the log will be evaluated
  • Sample research log
  • Information competencies for architecture
    students
  • Core competencies for students in all design
    disciplinesbasic skills (just the first 2 yrs.)

42
The State of Instruction in Architecture (cont.)
  • UNLV Survey sent to the AASL list 3/6/2006
    indicators
  • Involvement with Information Literacy
  • of 21 responses only six have instruction on
    information literacy
  • Number of libraries with online tutorials only
    four provided URLs, and those are guides for the
    most part
  • http//www.lib.berkeley.edu/ENVI/Guides.html
  • http//www.lib.utexas.edu/apl/guides.html
  • http//www.library.gatech.edu/architect/tutorial.h
    tml
  • http//www.library.unlv.edu/arch/instr/
  • Level of student most consistently involved in
    library instruction
  • First year
  • Graduate

43
The State of Instruction in Architecture (cont.)
  • Sample web tutorial/guide from UNLV

44
Relevance to UA Library MAT staff
  • Architecture libraries with front-end reference
    staff handle undergraduate-level questions and
    pass along graduate-level questions to the
    librarian
  • Current training of MAT staff at Fine Arts seems
    to be only a little beyond the freshman level for
    architecture
