The New York Chapter of the Art Libraries Society of North America, an organization that fosters excellence in art librarianship and the visual arts, meets several times a year either virtually or in-person for professional development opportunities, networking, or tours of the various relevant institutions in the New York City metropolitan area.
Chapter programs are great opportunities to meet fellow art library and visual art information colleagues from the area. Members typically include but are not limited to art librarians and visual resource curators, both active and retired, from academic, museum, public, and other special libraries, as well as specialized book dealers and graduate students in library and information science from the New York City area.
The Celine Palatsky Travel Award is given annually to support member travel to the ARLIS/NA annual conference and promote professional development.The association published ARLIS/NY News twice a year to report on news, member projects, and events in the community until 2012. An archive of past issues is available to chapter members only.
