As I have been telling my students for over 30 years, membership in ARLIS/NA IS how you become a fully engaged professional! It provides opportunities for critical networking with colleagues in North America and other countries as well, for meeting and working with art publishers and distributors of diverse print, electronic, and multi-media resources, and for learning about what is happening NOW in our profession and for meaningful continuing education sessions and workshops. ARLIS/NA has helped to nourish and sustain my career and I am most greatful for the contributions the Society has made to my professional life as an art librarian and educator.
