2016 Freitag Award winner

We are pleased to announce that Otto Luna is the recipient of this year’s Wolfgang Freitag Professional Development Award.

Otto Luna received a BA in Art History from Fordham University and a Master of Library Science degree from Queens College, CUNY. He worked as an art indexer and abstractor for the H.W. Wilson Company in New York and EBSCO Information Services in Ipswich, MA. He is currently the Visual Resources Librarian at the University of New Hampshire and resides in Beverly, MA.

The Wolfgang Freitag Award is made possible through the generous donations of New England Chapter members. Awarded in the amount of $1,000 to one recipient annually, it is intended to aid and encourage the professional development of chapter members and to ensure the vibrant future of the art librarianship profession.

Otto will use the Award to attend the 2017 Summer Education Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management, which will help him acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully accomplish his goals as the Visual Resources Librarian at UNH.

Please join us in congratulating Otto!
