New Voices 2: ARLIS/NA Annual Conference, Atlanta 2007

New Voices 2: Atlanta 2007
Organizer/Moderator: Sarah Falls

New Voices 2 showcases exceptional academic work by students and new professionals (under 5 years post MLS), including the Gerd Muesham award winning paper. For some of our participants, this may be a first-time opportunity to present their work at a professional conference. Veteran ARLIS members will have exposure to the sorts of issues that are being examined in library programs. This year, we have a range of topics, covering art and visual resources librarianship, new technologies that affect both and how these technologies can be utilized to direct ARLIS-NA as an organization, into the future.
