Please welcome your new ArLiSNAP Social Media Liaison, Ralph Baylor!Posted: May 4, 2015
ArLiSNAP is a great community of new professionals and students, when I saw the opportunity to join in the conversation as the Social Media Liaison, I had to take it. I am a recent graduate of Pratt Institute where I earned my MLIS and Masters in Art History. I am currently the Assistant Librarian for Public Services at the Frick Art Reference Library. There I oversee the Library’s Interlibrary Loan services and assist researchers at the Reference Desk. In addition I moonlight as the Collections Manager for the Center for Book Arts, where I am the librarian/registrar of The Center’s permanent collection of about 3,000 artist’s books and fine prints. I am passionate about Reference Services in Museum and Academic Libraries and the potential of web applications to assist in Humanities research.
As the Social Media Liasion I look forward to reaching out to the active community of ArLiSNAP-ers. Expect to find me facilitating on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and the other channels ArLiSNAP has a presence in (but not Secret — too soon?)! Lets share networking stories, the post-graduation job hunt, advice, and worries.
If you run into me on the New York City subway you’ll see that I love to read science-ficition (hard sci-fi, cyberpunk, nano-punk), always with a large cup of coffee in my hand. I am also an avid runner and participate is 4 or 5 half-marathons a year.
