The meeting will include member updates and a presentation by NYPL public services librarian Diane Dias De Fazio.

What do local history and genealogy and art and architecture research have in common? How can researchers find an address, learn more about an artist's neighborhood, solve an elusive estate mystery, pinpoint historic gallery locations, and gain valuable insights from landmark designation reports? Research resources in the Irma and Paul Milstein Division of United States History, Local History and Genealogy and the Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division include property insurance maps, city directories, digitized probate records, historical newspapers, government publications, and Census and vital records (and over 400 years of New York City-area history). Dias De Fazio will facilitate a discussion on these resources at The New York Public Library and share collections materials.

Retirement SIG
Open to SIG members as well as others beginning to think about this major transition. This session will include a brief business meeting, followed by discussion focussed on how our previous work relates (or not) to present activity and what continues to motivate us in retirement:

  • How have you used your skills as a librarian in retirement?
  • What are you able to do as a retired person that you didn’t have time for when you were working?
  • What keeps you engaged in ARLIS? What compels you to attend conferences?
  • How can this ARLIS group support the goals of the Society?

We expect plenty of time for conversation and socializing, with the gathering informally lasting until time to depart for convocation.
