  1. Hello Everyone!

    I am announcing my candidacy for the 2017-2019 Co-Moderator position. My name is Breanne Crumpton and I am the English Reference Librarian (I also liaison to the Fine Arts department) at Winston-Salem State University. I received my MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in May 2015. Before my current position, which I recently started, I was a Library Fellow at the North Carolina Museum of Art for over a year.

    I have been involved with ARLIS and ArLiSNAP since the fall in 2015. With ArLiSNAP, I have taken on the role of the Conference Planning Liaison and helped organize an online webinar for students and new professionals last May. I also helped organize the ArLiSNAP Career Development Workshop for the upcoming ARLIS Conference in New Orleans. With ARLIS, I also serve on the Development Committee and with these dual-roles have help to get a project approved by the ARLIS/NA board to crowdfund money for an ArLiSNAP New Professional Travel Award this coming Fall. In addition to this, I also am involved with our Southeast Chapter and have been a Co-Coordinator for the NOLA Silent Auction. Therefore, I have a lot of roles in professional involvement and organizing events.

    In addition to my roles in ARLIS, I am also the ARLIS/NA Liaison to VRA, and the Chair of the Student Relations Committee with the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA), where we are planning a student track at our next biennial conference. While I wear a lot of hats, I love the challenge and my goals across the board has always been helping students and new professionals in librarianship because we are the future!

    My future goals for ArLiSNAP would be to really entrench our present in ARLIS/NA and show the value we bring to the organization. I would look to continue to build relationships with LIS program to promote ArLiSNAP (and by continuation ARLIS/NA), especially places with strong fine arts and art history programs or dual-degrees. I would also like to continue our started tradition of an annual webinar as well as continuously promote open liaison and volunteer positions to keep our perspective fresh and new and build our social media following. Finally, I would like to look into continuing the initiative of current Co-Moderator, Tiffany Saulter, in finding ways to raise funds for our organization to use in promotion and other needs.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Breanne Crumpton
