Assistant Librarian, Yale Center for British Art Reference Library and Archives
When I first discovered ARLIS/NA as a graduate student in the School of Information and Library Science at UNC-Chapel Hill, I felt somewhere between disbelief and elation: an entire society dedicated to art librarianship?!? How incredible! I first participated locally within my school’s division and then quickly joined ARLIS/NA before graduating my program in 2010. I found the list-serv to be of exponential help and importance as I navigated through a new career, and I even found the listing for my current position posted there!
