(You can find the whole list of positions here, or on the right sidebar.)

Feature Post Writer – One Position Available

Our team of writers contribute posts on topics relevant to the field of art librarianship. These include posts exploring current hot topics, interviews, success stories, and more. Potential discussion topics might relate to art & design, copyright, education, and other subjects that can spark a conversation.

Communications Liaison

Please welcome your new Feature Post Writer, Anna Van Someren!

I am so excited to start contributing to ArLiSNAP as a Feature Post Writer! I’m graduating with my MLIS from Simmons College this May with a concentration in Cultural Heritage Informatics. I feel really lucky to have found this community for students and new professionals in the field as I navigate my way in this new career. I started out as a video artist, and worked as a digital video editor after receiving my MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I’ve been a youth worker, after-school program coordinator, and an adjunct professor. More recently I spent 5 years at MIT as an academic project manager for research initiatives in new media and digital humanities.

At my first library job, I was really surprised at how much I love working the reference desk! Right now I’m working at the Boston Public Library in the print department, helping to inventory their art collection – it’s a dream job, discovering and describing original works of art! I also work at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as a Contemporary Art Collections Metadata and Data Documentation intern.

In my spare time, I read wildly esoteric spiritual books, try to fit in a yoga class here and there, and do community organizing for immigrant and refugee rights.
