Returning for a fifth year, the New Voices panel will provide new Art Librarianship and Visual Resources professionals the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master’s thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLS or Master’s programs leading to a career in librarianship or visual resources, or those 5 years post Master’s level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement. This panel was begun at the ARLIS-NA 2006 conference in Banff and has received wide attention and praise in its four iterations since. The topics presented reveal new ways of thinking about old problems, as well as up-and-coming ideas, and give the conference attendees a glimpse of the academic interests and current discourse of the newest members of ARLIS/NA and VRA. Working closely with the Gerd Muesham committee this year, two speakers will be the Muesham award winners from 2010 and 2011. Additional speakers are presented at the suggestion of the VRA Education Committee, ArLiSNAP, and the VRA+ARLIS/NA Joint Conference Co-chairs for Program.
