ARLIS/NA Mountain West + VRA Wild West Virtual Conference 2016
Call for Proposals

The ARLIS/NA Mountain West Chapter and The Wild West Chapter of VRA are teaming up to bring you a virtual conference in 2016. We would like to cordially invite you to submit proposals for the Virtual Conference 2016: Innovative Use of Art Resources and Marketing Success Stories.

The proposal deadline is Monday, March 7!

Based on the success of the Mountain West Chapter’s new virtual conference format, we are eager to use the virtual format again. Similar to the last virtual conference, we need a diverse set of presenters. If you have an interesting project that you are currently working on or recently finished, please consider submitting a proposal to present it to your peers.

Please note, this call for proposals is open to any; not only members of VRA and ARLIS.
Perhaps you had a proposal turned down for the ARLIS/NA national conference. Here is another opportunity to share it!

Winberta Yao 2016 Travel Award Winner

Congratulations to Jessica Mlotkowski, the 2016 recipient of the Winberta Yao Travel Award from the Mountain West Chapter of ARLIS/NA!

Jessica earned her MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011, where her concentration was in the organization of information and materials.

Currently, Jessica is the Cataloger and Public Services Librarian at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), in Santa Fe, New Mexico. IAIA is the only four-year degree fine arts institution in the United States devoted to contemporary Native American and Alaska Native Arts.

Jessica’s academic focus has been on cataloging and metadata management for visual resources, as well as the role our cultural perspectives and perceptions play in the description and retrieval of those resources. Diversity, social justice, and bias in descriptive practices are themes that Jessica considers daily in her personal work.
