Membership Application




The ARLIS/NA-Mountain West chapter would like to invite you to participate in our annual virtual conference.

The theme for this year is Testing the Waters: Professional Experimentation in the Arts and Art Librarianship. In keeping with this theme, our conference is trying an experimental new format that includes both asynchronous and synchronous components. Here’s how it works:

  • Presentations have been recorded ahead of time and uploaded to the conference website so that you, the participant, can watch them all at your own pace.

  • Live discussion boards, bios, pictures, slidedecks and other links are included for each presenter page.

  • A live Q&A will be held on Dec. 5th, 9-11:30 AM MST. This will allow everyone to interact directly with the presenters with any questions, comments, or suggestions you may have. If you are not able to attend, this session will also be recorded for everyone to enjoy later.

To join us for our conference, simply sign up using the REGISTER HERE link on the left. We hope you will participate in this experimental new conference!
