Please join me in welcoming our new Conference Planning Liaison, Lauren Haberstock!
It is an absolute pleasure to step into the role of Conference Liaison for ArLiSNAP! I am a relatively recent member of ARLIS/NA, having joined last summer as an intern at the Frick Art Reference Library. I am currently pursuing my MLIS degree at the University of Arizona and will graduate in December 2019. I work as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Arizona Library where I provide original and copy-cataloging services and work with a team to digitize government technical reports. This summer, I will be living in Washington, DC and working as an intern at The Phillips Collection alongside their head librarian.
I have a background in International Studies and German, which led me to study abroad in Germany during my undergraduate degree. I had the opportunity to spend a week in Vienna where I fell in love with the Albertina and the Leopold museums and the work of Henri Matisse. This initial encounter has blossomed into a love and appreciation for art, color, expression, and the joy of sharing these experiences with others. It is my hope to do so through a career as an information professional.
I am an avid reader, a global adventurer, lover of the outdoors, and can usually be found in a museum on my days off. I play the piano, guitar, and dulcimer and love a good live music venue.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with my co-liaison and the rest of the ArLiSNAP community in order to create a positive conference experience for everyone! The annual ARLIS/NA conference provides an incredible opportunity for members of this professional association to come together and learn from one another, taking away inspiration and hope for the future of the arts. Please reach out to me with any suggestions or ideas you may have. I am honored to be a part of this community.
