This article is an extension of a presentation that occurred at the 2018 College Art Association, Visual Resources Association affiliate session in Los Angeles. The session was entitled, “Shifting Sands: New Trends in Visual Resource Services.” It is a case study based upon the author's personal experience of twelve years working as the production editor for UC Irvine's Journal for Learning through the Arts. It is suggested that visual resources curators are well-positioned to support electronic publishing ventures. With the plethora of online tools supporting digital technology, there are opportunities for visual resources professionals to support more than the use of images at their institutions. Other examples of ways to expand a visual resources toolkit are provided that the author hopes professionals will find translatable to their situations.
