Our Volunteers

ArLiSNAP is made possible by its team of dedicated volunteers! Interested in volunteering? ArLiSNAP volunteers play essential roles in our group, and have the opportunity to network and support their fellow members. These positions are flexible and often collaborative; if there’s something outside of a volunteer’s role that they want to pursue (like posting a feature or starting a dialogue on Twitter), volunteers are encouraged to work together to do so. We are always happy to welcome more people to help our community grow, and we issue calls for new volunteers on this site, over the ArLiSNAP listerv, and through ARLIS-L. Getting involved in ArLiSNAP is a great way to show your dedication to the field of art librarianship, so keep a lookout for ways in which you can help through those channels! For more information in the meantime, please email the ArLiSNAP account: arlisnap.na@gmail.com.
