New Voices showcases exceptional academic work by students and new professionals (under 5 years post MLS) at the annual ARLIS-NA conference, this year to occur May 1-5, 2008 in Denver, CO (www.arlisna.org). Five papers, including the Gerd Muesham award winner, are presented on a variety of topics that engage with Arts and Visual Resources Librarianship. Topics may include and are not limited to: Digital Libraries, Archives, Cataloging/Metadata Standards, Instruction and Outreach, Marketing, Asssessment, Book Arts.
Selected speakers must be able to give a 15 minute presentation of their work from a finished, scholarly paper with A/V files that are submittable for later, post-conference proceedings. Current students are given first preference as speakers, and are encouraged to apply for ARLIS-NA travel awards.
If interested, please send an abstract and contact information by Sept. 25 to Sarah Falls at the University of Richmond. firstname.lastname@example.org
