After the election question, we’ve included a few questions about what you’d like to see on ArLiSNAP. These questions are not mandatory; feel free to answer as many or as few as you like, but be sure to skip to the last page to click “Done” and have your vote counted. Thank you to all those who take the time to answer these extra questions, and help us shape ArLiSNAP for the coming year!


What’s it like to be an ArLiSNAP Co-Moderator?

I’ve had a few questions about the responsibilities surrounding the Co-Moderator position, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on my experience with ArLiSNAP over the past two years.

What are the main responsibilities?

ArLiSNAP Co-Moderators are the main contacts for the group to the ARLIS/NA Board. We alert them to any issues raised by students and new professionals, and submit an annual report on the group’s activities, as well as updates on projects throughout the year. Through this and our other projects, I’ve met many wonderful and supportive people in ARLIS/NA, and learned a lot about how these professional organizations function.

The most common work you would do as Co-Moderator is to respond to inquiries about the group via email, and update liaisons and other members on current ArLiSNAP news. Around conference time, you would also help to organize events at the ARLIS/NA conference – check out what we have planned for this year here. If you choose to, you also have the opportunity to help plan events like our virtual conference, which provided a platform for students and new professionals to connect and share their work without any of the costs associated with presenting at a physical conference.

What are some of the benefits?

As Co-Moderator, you will also be organizing the efforts of our volunteers. If you don’t have any supervisory experience on your resume, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of, as it gives you the chance to hone your leadership skills. ArLiSNAP has grown into a great little community – the liaisons support one another, and grow to become friends the longer you work together. During my tenure as Co-Moderator, I’ve met so many fantastic people from across Canada and the US. I’ve also greatly increased my number of contacts in the art libraries world; if you’re serious about making a career as a librarian or archivist in an arts-related field, being a Co-Moderator for the group is a great step to take.

How much time will I have to commit?

If you can commit at least one hour per week to the group, you’ll be helping to keep ArLiSNAP thriving and active. The workload is a bit heavier when we’re gearing up for a big event, like the ARLIS/NA conference this month; and it’s a bit lighter at other times, like during the summer. If you choose to make other events happen, like our virtual conference, that will also take a bit more time, but you will have the support of many volunteers backing you up.

I hope that answers most of the questions for those of you who are considering becoming our next Co-Moderator! To submit your candidacy, comment on this post. If you have any other questions, feel free to email myself (Ellen) or Rachel (emails found in sidebar). Good luck to all candidates!

Meet your new ArLiSNAP Co-Moderator, Rachel Schend!

Rachel Schend

Hi everyone! I am very happy to accept the ArLiSNAP Co-Moderator position for the 2014-2016 term and am excited to get to work.

I am currently a second year graduate student pursuing a dual Art History/MLS degree from Indiana University, where I also received my B.A. in Art History. I have a variety of jobs on campus including a Graduate Assistantship at the IU Art Museum with the Curator of Education and a Graduate Supervisor position at the Fine Arts Library on campus. This summer, I will be starting a position at the E. Lingle Craig Preservation Lab.  I am president of IU’s Society of Art Librarianship Students and treasurer of the Art History Association. Some of my interests in art librarianship include the preservation of materials, visual literacy, and library instruction.

As I begin my term, I would love to see more engagement in career development for students such as resumé reviews and Reddit-style AMA’s by current art librarians. I would also love to hear about projects that members of the group want to see implemented. Thank you all for voting and I look forward to working with you for the next two years!

Ellen Tisdale

Hello ArLiSNAP!

I’m very excited to be starting out as a moderator for the 2013-2015 term. I hope to explore many new opportunities in art librarianship with all of you over the next two years.

For those of you who missed my introduction, let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m Canadian, hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba. I finished my Bachelors of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba in 2011. I have been working with the U of M libraries since 2007, first as a Library Assistant 1, and now as a Library Assistant 3. After considering going into education or art therapy, both of which were not really for me, I realized that I should try to combine my love of art and my passion for helping students in a library, which has led me to the path I am on today.

At the moment, I am enrolled in my third term of the online MLIS program through Wayne State University. I began the program last fall, after returning from spending a year living in Leipzig, Germany, with my partner who is studying there. While in Leipzig I worked mainly as an ESL teacher, which reinforced my decision not to go into education – though I enjoy teaching adults in a library setting, I don’t quite have the disposition (or energy!) to manage thirty excitable children. I also had the chance to complete internships in two libraries: one in the research library at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and one in an art centre/library known as Halle 14. I’m very inspired by a library that can bring in all kinds of different people for events and collaboration, which is just what Halle 14 is all about.

I’m looking forward to meeting and working with all of you in the years to come. If you have any suggestions, comments, or ideas, please do contact Stephanie or myself at ellen.j.tisdale@gmail.com.

Onward/upward–one co-coordinator leaves, another steps up

As the time of the ARLIS/NA 2012 Conference in Toronto nears, that means (of course) that the time for a change of leadership in ArLiSNAP has arrived. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to help with this group over the past two years. I’m excited to remain a member, contribute my voice, and help ArLiSNAP work even harder for the people it represents.

The past year has seen ArLiSNAP made some important progress, though not all of it might have been immediately visible. At this time, we are currently waiting final approval from the president of ARLIS/NA to complete ArLiSNAP’s transition from Special Interest Group to official Section. This status will afford our membership a greater voice within the ARLIS/NA organization and further legitimize the importance of issues pertinent to students and young professionals within the community. 2009-2011 Co-Coordinator Bryan Loar was invaluable throughout this process, acting as liaison with ARLIS and shepherding our petition through lots of red tape. Our thanks to him for his continued dedication. In a similar vein, the ArLiSNAP website will soon be a part of the official ARLIS website. TEI and Chris Roper are currently working on this transfer of information now. Both of these measures will help magnify our group’s purpose a great deal.

Many discussions about how members can become more actively involved with ArLiSNAP also took place in the past year. A number of volunteer positions are in development. The coordinators of this group feel the most direct path to continued and increased success of ArLiSNAP lies in finding ways to reach out to more student organizations and regional ARLIS chapters, presenting more educational information and opportunities for students and young professionals, and connecting our members to the greater infrastructure of ARLIS. Opportunities for different liaison positions will be discussed at the ArLiSNAP meeting on Friday, March 30th at 4 p.m. Please make sure to be there so your voice can be heard.

With any transition, there are logistics to be minded. Statements of interest for the new co-moderator position are now being accepted. Submissions should be brief (a few sentences) and state some personal background info (school, work, passions) along with a bit of what you would bring to ArLiSNAP as a leader (ideas!). All those interested can simply post a comment on this blog entry! Comments on that entry will be open until midnight on Friday, April 6th. A poll will be created on April 7th and voting will be open for one week. The candidate with the most votes on April 13th will be named co-moderator for 2012-2014.

I very much wish that I could attend the conference this year but I know that Suzanne will do an excellent job leading the meeting. I really ask that you all be vocal, be creative, and don’t be afraid to take on new responsibilities (even though I know we’re all overworked and underpaid). The fuel of this group is volunteerism and foresight. I think that individually, we can all make a big difference for the entire group. Though I will no longer be coordinator, I will still contribute to this blog and to the development of ArLiSNAP’s future.

I hope to keep learning from all of you.

My thanks to everyone.

Rosemary K. J. Davis, MSLIS
