Paper proposals for the New Voices in the Profession session at the joint ARLIS-NA, VRA joint conference (2011, Minneapolis) are now being accepted.
New Voices showcases exceptional academic work by students and new professionals (under 5 years post MLS.) Paper topics should relate strongly to Art and/or Visual Resources Librarianship, but also digital library projects, archives, library instruction, reference and the changing nature of libraries, among other topics.
To see papers presented in past sessions, you can look at the Conference Proceedings from previous years on the ARLIS website (http://www.arlisna.org/news/conferences/conf_index.html).
If interested, please send a paper topic and explanation/abstract to me (mportis (at) nysid.edu) by December 20th. Please feel free to re-post.
Assistant Librarian, New York School of Interior Design
