Marlan is interested in art librarianship as well as art archives, especially photography/moving image and rare books, and is looking forward to continuing to learn about this field!

Awarded in the amount of $500 to one recipient annually, it is intended to support and encourage future art librarians by helping to defray student expenses (tuition, professional development, conference attendance, housing, materials, etc.).
Please join us in congratulating Marlan!
