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.
