Please join me in welcoming our new Communications Liaison, Jackie Fleming!
My name is Jackie Fleming and I am so excited to be a part of ArLiSNAP as the Communications Liaison. On May 12th, I graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign’s iSchool with my MSLIS and a Graduate Minor in Art History.
During my time at the iSchool, I had a Graduate Assistantship at the Ricker Library of Architecture & Art. While I have always been interested in art, this position helped me realize how much I loved the subject and wanted to pursue a career in art librarianship. Some of my favorite parts of my assistantship at the Ricker Library were: working the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, creating a theme and choosing materials for the Ricker Library rotating collections, creating LibGuides for the Ricker Library and Krannert Art Museum, and helping patrons with their research in the areas of art or architecture.
Now that I have graduated, I am looking to become more involved in ARLIS. I am so excited to be the Communications Liaison for ArLiSNAP and to meet new people with the same passions and interests that I have.
