Organized by the Art Library Students and New ARLIS Professionals (ArLiSNAP) Division, this Career Development Workshop will provide meaningful discussions for students and new professionals looking to break into the field of art librarianship. This half-day workshop will consist of a presentation on publishing, an open forum panel discussion on applying for jobs, and an interactive resume and cover letter review session.

Students and new professionals are invited to ask their questions to our panel of professionals. Our panelists, each with various hiring experiences under their belt, represent academia, museums, and search committees offering a unique chance for participants to ask questions about the job search process from those who have been on the other side of the table. After the panel, there will be a hands-on resume and cover letter review where we will discuss some best practices. Please remember to bring a copy of your resumes to participate in an interactive review session and gain feedback from our panelists and fellow peers.

Career advice panelists are:
Heather Slania, Director of Decker Library at Maryland Institute College of Art
Suz Massen, Chief of Public Services at The Frick Collection
Tina Lidogoster, Assistant Museum Librarian at Watson Library, Metropolitan Museum of Art
Molly Schoen, Visual Resources Curator at the Fashion Institute of Technology

Our second panel will break down the publishing process and provide insights on writing and publishing as a librarian. Our presenters will offer perspectives from the publihing world as well as from both early career and experienced librarians.
