- The emergence of "digital art history," and how it is diverging from the broader understanding of the digital humanities.
- The interconnected scholarly communities that support art history, including museums, libraries, and visual resource centers, both within and beyond an art historian's home institution.
- The changes that digitization and online search portals have brought to the process of searching for primary sources and the limitations of the current discovery environment.
- The practices art historians employ for managing their large personal collections of digital images.
- The state of graduate students' professional training.
Within these five areas, the report makes clear that the needs of art historians can be successfully met only through the collaborative work of many support organizations. Additionally, the findings suggest several opportunities for these organizations to develop new funding, services, tools, and initiatives that will have far-reaching impact on the discipline.
