Art Librarian (Full), Architecture/Fine Arts Library, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada
I first became aware of ARLIS/NA way back in 1991/92 when I was a library science student at the University of Western Ontario, now known as Western University. A professor there told me about ARLIS/NA, as she knew I had a M.A. in art history and had worked in an art library. Whenever I could, I related my assignments to art librarianship and my bibles soon became Art Information: Research Methods and Resources by Lois Swan Jones and Facilities Standards for Art Libraries and Visual Resources Collections, by B.J. Irvine. Imagine my thrill when I finally met these incredible art librarians in person in my ARLIS/NA future, then still unbeknownst to me! In fact, the ARLIS/NA listserv deserves 100% credit for where I am today because it is where I saw my present position advertised!
