On July 17th Panopticon (the Simmons GSLIS art library interest group) and ARLIS/NE co-hosted a career panel at Simmons. 38 graduate students and art library enthusiasts came on a beautiful summer evening to hear five librarians talk about their career paths in art librarianship and offer advice to those just entering the profession.
I’d like to thank my fellow panelists for participating:
Deborah Barlow Smedstad, Museum of Fine Arts Boston
Rachel Beckwith, Simmons GSLIS West and ARTstor
Robert Burton, Weissman Preservation Center at Harvard University
Brooke Henderson, Wellesley College
They were frank, entertaining, and fascinating.
I would also like to extend a special thanks to Anne Reid and Martha Mahard at Simmons College and Darin Murphy from Panopticon.
If you’re sorry you missed the event, it’s not too late. The podcast is available at http://gslis.simmons.edu/podcasts/
