Hello Fellow Art Librarians and Aspiring Art Librarians. I am currently the GlaxoSmithKline fellow for the reference library at the North Carolina Museum of Art through the end of next May. I graduated this past May (2015) with my MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My undergraduate degree is in Business Administration with a double major in Art History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).
I have numerous experiences with a variety of cultural institutions. I worked at UNC’s Music Library for three years during my undergraduate and have volunteered at many locations including the High Point Museum, UNCG’s Special Collections and University Archives, and Greenhill, an art gallery in downtown Greensboro.
My interests in art librarianship lies with advocacy (especially for art museum libraries), making connections between libraries and the artist community, as well as encouraging art and artist professional development in other library spaces (such as academic and public libraries). I am looking forward to being the new Conference Planning Liaison because I feel there are a lot of interesting and valuable projects continuously going on across the country and the opportunity to share these ideas and gain feedback is paramount. I look forward to working with everyone and thank you for this opportunity!
