A warm welcome for Marsha Taichman and Jenna Dufour, ArLiSNAP's new Conference Planning Liaisons!

Marsha and Jenna will be helping us in our future conference planning endeavors. Welcome to the team!

Marscha Taichman

Marsha Taichman is the Visual Resources and Public Services Librarian for the College of Architecture, Art and Planning at Cornell University. She works with faculty, staff and students on general reference and with their print and digital image needs. Before moving to upstate New York, she worked in Montreal at academic and public libraries, art galleries and the Canadian Centre for Architecture. She has an MA in Art History from Concordia University and an MLIS from McGill University.

 

Jenna Dufour

 

Hi! I’m Jenna. I am in the messy midst of building a career as an art librarian. Currently, I am enrolled in the MLIS program for January 2015 at UBC and I’m incredibly excited to pursue a program that’ll help fulfill my career goals while being surrounded by beaches, ocean and mountains.
 
I earned a BA (Hons.) with distinction in Art History from Carleton University in 2013. While studying for my degree, I worked part-time in the Reference Services department at Carleton’s library and loved it, which facilitated a desire to learn more about librarianship. I enrolled in two practicums during my degree to compliment my passion for art history and interest in librarianship: one with the art history subject librarian at Carleton University’s library, and the other at the National Gallery of Canada Library & Archives. These placements affirmed my vocation, and I’m really grateful for the time each institution took to take me on as an intern.
 
After graduating, I spent three months in England and Europe reveling in the beauty and charm of historic old libraries in places like Oxford, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Reykjavik, and London. Making connections between the way that libraries run in Canada and across the pond was a great experience for me. After arriving back to Canada, I was fortunate to land a contract at the Paul D. Fleck Library & Archives for six-months at the Banff Centre, which has been really great in terms of learning more about art librarianship, and even working with Artists’ Books.  I am really looking forward to being part of the ArLiSNAP community and meeting other aspiring art librarians.
