2018 ARLIS/NA National Conference Travel Award Winner

The ARLIS/NA New England Chapter is thrilled to announce that the recipient of our 2018 ARLIS/NA National Conference Travel Award is Denise O’Malley! Denise will receive an award of $1,000 toward covering conference expenses. Money for this award is generously donated by ARLIS/NA New England Chapter members.

Denise has been working in public services at the Fine Arts Library, Harvard University, for 11 years and is currently working on her MLS at Simmons. Denise plans to use the award to attend the ARLIS/NA National Conference in New York where she is interested in learning more about expanding notions of access through more dynamic outreach and creating ways of leveraging existing resources. In particular, Denise is very interested in the workshop, From the Margins to the Center: Cultivating a Critical, Reflective, and Radical Practice in Art Librarianship, which would be extremely relevant given the marginalized populations that she work with at the community college where she teaches Art History and where questions of access, place, race, and rights are realities not abstract notions.

Denise’s application was chosen from a very competitive submission pool, which we feel reflects the excellent work being done by art library professionals in New England. Please join us in congratulating Denise!
