Temporary Name Change

OK, so I’m fooling around with our site’s name.  I’m not very partial to what I’ve named it (i.e. SNAP), but I can’t think of a better way to incorporate both students & new professionals.  Could it be because it’s 2:45am?  Maybe.

SNAP = Students & New ARLIS Professionals


  1. I like SNAP pretty well. It might be a bit of a forced feeling with the exclamation point – what do other people think?

  2. I like the wildcard idea, but I’m afraid that people might look for an explanation of the * at the bottom of the page, ie not see it as a wildcard. Maybe we could call it Arlis/NA and then in the aboutness page talk about how we want it to be a global resource, not just North American?

    I don’t mind the exclamation point too much, but I wonder if, when saying “oh, snap!” becomes totally obsolete (I’m not the one who’s going to know when that happens or if it has already…), it will have a negative effect on our blog’s branding.

  3. All ideas are good ideas when you’re brainstorming…what if we called it ArLiSNAP? I guess it wouldn’t really be an acronym. The second A doesn’t work as well, but if no one thinks about it too hard…

  4. I like ArLiSNAP! I like how you could actually spin it as ARLIS/NA, ARLIS*, & SNAP. I think you’re on to something! I’ll be away for the rest of the day, but tonight I plan on changing our Aboutness page & fixing the video.
