*please excuse cross-postings*
On behalf of the Executive Board of the ARLIS/NA Northwest Chapter I would like to offer my congratulations to Nicole Lovenjak for being awarded the Northwest Chapter’s Travel Award to the 2015 ARLIS/NA Conference in Fort Worth.
Nicole, who is currently doing a practicum at the Paul D. Fleck Library & Archives, The Banff Centre, is very involved with ARLIS/NA and will be presenting a poster about The Banff Centre’s transition to an open stack artists’ book collection. She also looks forward to talking with others at the conference about the challenges and positive outcomes of her project, Artists’ Books Canada.
Please join the rest of the Northwest Chapter Executive Board and me in congratulating Nicole!
