Sponsored by the Margaret Herrick Library, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Researching Film Costume Design at the Margaret Herrick Library - Anne Coco, Graphic Arts Librarian, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Serving the Story at the Western Costume Research Library - Bobi Garland, Director, Western Costume Research Library and Archive

Moderator: Lindsay M. King, Public Services Librarian and Liaison to the School of Drama, Yale University

This session will explore production research for film, with a focus on costume design and related library collections in the Los Angeles area, but will also address applications for reference and collection development related to costume in more general library collections. How do costume designers find the wide range of images and materials that serve as inspiration and technical background for productions? What combination of high-tech and low-tech tools do designers use in doing production research, sharing visual ideas, documenting productions, etc.? How are costume designers unique library users, and what can librarians do to better serve this group of patrons?
