ARLIS/Norden 2017 Conference

Annual conference of the Art Libraries Society of Scandinavia 2017


  1. I'm not sure why the Theatre Academy Library has a stuffed horse in its foyer, nor why it has a stuffed goose in the library.
  2. They do, however, have some comfy spots in the library for reading.
  3. The opening session featured several artists discussing how they use libraries in their practice.
  4. One of the artists was Anna Heinamaa - I didn't tweet anything during her talk, primarily because I was fighting off a bit of jetlag at that stage but I do recall that she was unhappy about the lack of original screenplays in Finnish libraries. When she embarked on a career change from writer to screenwriter and was looking for guidance, she sought out screenplays in libraries and found very few.
