Please welcome our new Conference Liaison, Michelle Wilson!

Hello everyone – I’m excited to join ArLiSNAP’s volunteers as your new Conference Liaison!

I moved to New York from Boston about about two and a half years ago to take my current job at Oxford University Press where I am an editor for Art Reference. In Boston, I earned my bachelor’s from Tufts University and a master’s from Boston University – both in Art History – and I am halfway through my MLIS coursework at Rutgers. At OUP I primarily develop content and manage data for The Grove Dictionary of Art and the Benezit Dictionary of Artists.  Developing these resources, getting to know many art librarians through reference publishing, and my past work with archives and works on paper at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Nichols House Museum in Boston all led me back to school to study librarianship. Outside of classes and my day job, I am also a volunteer at Interference Archive in Brooklyn, and a maker of slightly-off-center ceramics at a local pottery studio here in Manhattan.

I’m looking forward to a great virtual conference in October and getting to see some of you at the 2018 ARLIS/NA Conference here in New York next year.


  1. Hi Michelle,

    Is there a list serve for connecting with other students or SNAP members who are going to the NY conference 2018 and may want to share a hotel room or meet up?

    Are there any volunteer opportunities at the NY conference, either in exchange for a discounted registration fee or as a chance to get involved?

    Thank You!


    1. Hi Jennifer,

      I’ve received a similar request from some other members. I am working on setting up a google group so that SNAPs will have a forum to talk with and reach out to one another – watch the listserv for that announcement.

      We don’t have any volunteer opportunities to work with ArLiSNAP at the conference. ARLIS have posted a volunteer sign up for the conference at large, which you might check out:
