Chapter Award: Congrats to the Winner of ARLIS/NA Upstate NY Travel Award!

Congratulations to Sandra Brown, the recipient of the 2014 ARLIS/NA Upstate NY Travel Award Award! The $200 award will help to defray the expense of attending the 2014 ARLIS/NA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., May 1-5.

Sandra, a MSIS candidate at SUNY Albany, will be co-presenting a workshop, “Bookings: Making Makerspaces for Artists Books” at the conference.

“The workshop will combine a discussion of makerspaces along with hands-on practice in several bookbinding techniques. We’ll be working with book structures that could easily translate to creative programing in library spaces. The workshop will also allow attendees to experiment with politically themed content in their new book creations. I’ve been really fascinated with the growing makerspace buzz in the library field because of my long connection with studio arts programming. My presentation partners from the Women’s Studio Workshop offer instruction, equipment, and studio space for printmaking, papermaking and book arts in the Hudson Valley. One of the goals of the WSW space is to support artists who need certain equipment to work on a project but don’t have them readily available in their own home studio. I am interested in the parallels between WSW’s community focused studio space and library makerspaces that offer similar access to creative tools. I love that libraries can be incubators for thought, idea, and material creation. I hope our workshop will help fuel some artistic inspiration for other ARLIS members!

I am looking forward to my first ARLIS conference so much. I know it will be an inspiring event, and it will feel a bit celebratory for me too since I will also be wrapping up my last semester of MLIS coursework in early May. What an exciting time for me to be able to participate!”

Congrats Sandra!
