It’s hard to believe that our Fashion & Textile Lighting Talks are less than one week away on Wednesday, February 28 at 11:15am to 12:15pm at the Hilton: Murray Hill West! We look forward to seeing everyone!
We will be on Twitter and Instagram during the conference using the hashtag #FASHIONLIBRARIANSHIP . Please feel free to use this hashtag as well, if there are any thoughts or pictures from tours, exhibitors, events, etc. that you’d like to share.
Our lightning talks will feature six speakers from museums and academia demonstrating the many ways fashion and textile librarians/archivists find innovative ways to support their users and foster scholarship. Lynora Williams will present on solo librarianship and making holdings available to the dedicated community of textile scholars and appreciators at the Arthur D. Jenkins Library at the Textile Museum. Julie Lê will present a case study discussing how Instagram has become successful medium for international outreach and advocacy as well as a tool for reference inquiries when working with patrons in creative and fashion-related fields at the Irene Lewisohn Costume Reference Library. Alexandra Duncan will present on a project undertaken at the London College of Fashion Library involving three embedded information literacy sessions taught collaboratively between the librarian and faculty. Celia Hartmann will present on the many cross-departmental professional collaborations that were crucial to processing and making available the archival records of the American couturier Charles James to researchers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lana Bittman will present on making historical fashion forecasts available at FIT and how the historical forecasts have turned into a viable study collection and how they are being utilized for instruction. Sandra Ley will present on key academic and industry digital resources via her analysis of premier fashion program LibGuides.

Faculty in our fashion retail program are interested in Product LifeCycle Management software. They mentioned Gerber Tech PLM and Lectra; I have also found Bamboo Rose, NGC Andromeda, and Infor Fashion. None of these let me get a good look at how they work without alerting a sales rep; and none have pricing available, either.
Do any of your schools subscribe to one of these or a similar service? If so, can you tell me what you think of the service you use?
Is there such a thing as an academic version or price? Or perhaps single seats?
Or perhaps you have seen an article that compares services?
