The travel award is given in memory of Celine Palatsky, who served as the Associate Museum Librarian of the Thomas J. Watson Library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 1971 to 1999 and as ARLIS/NY Treasurer for fourteen consecutive years. Celine grew up in France, and as a cataloger and reference librarian at the Met, she handled books in a number of languages, including Greek and Latin. She was a dedicated professional, serving this chapter from 1979 to 1993 and participating in local, regional, and national meetings. Celine was an avid and enthusiastic traveler, enjoying the arts, fine food, and adventure.

 

The amount and number of awards varies based on chapter resources and location of the annual conference. The ARLIS/NA New York Chapter Travel Award was initiated in 1993 and renamed the Celine Palatsky Travel Award in 2000.



A special fund in support of the Celine Palatsky Travel Award has been established. We encourage members to donate to promote conference attendance and professional development of our community.
