Museums are not simply stewards of content; they are organizations with deep expertise and important learning spaces in their own right. Yet at too many institutions our university museums struggle to achieve the breadth and depth of engagement appropriate to their potential contributions. In January 2016, CNI, working together with the Kress and Mellon Foundations, the Association of Art Museums and Galleries and ARL, co-convened a meeting, hosted by the University of Miami, of library and art museum directors for a discussion of cooperation and collaboration within the broader institutional missions of teaching and learning, research and public service. This is the beginning of an extended dialog and collaboration. A report of the meeting is available, and we will be convening an executive roundtable to advance the discussions.
