Research Awards 2019: Call for Nominations
The ARLIS/NA Research Awards Subcommittee of the Awards Committee has announced that applications are now being accepted for the Research Awards. The three awards recognize the professional, scholarly pursuits of ARLIS/NA members.
The H.W. Wilson Foundation Research Award provides funds, up to $3,000, to be used in support of future and in-process research projects that contribute to and benefit the art librarianship and visual resources profession, and librarianship in general.
Worldwide Books Award for Publications
Worldwide Books Award for Electronic Resources
The Worldwide Books Award for Publications and the Worldwide Books Award for Electronic Resources bestow cash prizes—up to $2,000 each—for outstanding print and online art publications that have been published within the past two years, 2017 or 2018. These publications may be in the form of a book, a website, an article, etc.
The Research Awards Subcommittee welcomes self-nominations or nominations for work of an ARLIS/NA colleague that deserves recognition. Applications for the three awards will all be due on or before Friday, December 14, 2018.

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!
The Professional Development Education Subcommittee and the Public Policy Committee will present the webinar, "Institutional Advocacy & Demonstrating the Value of Art Libraries" on December 12, 2014, 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. EST.
