What do you do when you’re a specialty decorative arts company with a long history of specializing in interior finishes and high-end wall coverings, and staff are unable to consistently leverage past projects, artists, and recipes in support of business development, sales efforts, and new material production?
You hire a librarian. And then, you implement a unified ILS and knowledge management platform.
Fresco Decorative Arts in Manhattan was facing a number of challenges, and their solo librarian was looking for an ILS to meet them. She had the following requirements, all of which were successfully met by GeniePlus:
- Single venue for job details and sample circulation
- SaaS for automatic updating and independence from IT
- Easy to configure and adapt
- Comprehensive project histories
- Permissions management
We sat down with solo librarian Nicolette Lagomarsini for a fascinating talk about the Fresco Decorative Arts GeniePlus implementation. We invite you to learn more about the many ways she and her colleagues leverage GeniePlus to deliver unique services with serious impact—internally and to the company’s clients.

As special librarians who provide training, it is our job to use reputable sources and research-based practices rather than perpetuating neuromyths.
Librarians, archivists and museum professionals can learn and improve our organizations by seeing good practices LAM colleagues are developing.
Special librarians delivering training should know what doesn’t work, as well as what does. The myth of learning styles is an example.
