He is particularly interested in how archives and special collections can be made more accessible to marginalized communities.

    Nic will be presenting a Lightning Talk, “Our Artists, Our Culture: Critically Cataloging The Black Arts Movement”, at the Annual Conference.

    This year’s award committee was Giana Ricci, Jillian Suarez, and Joey Vincennie.

    The group will start its work as soon as possible and is expected to finish by the end of May 2022, although the timeline is flexible. 

    If you are interested in serving on this short-term committee, please contact Cindy Wolff, ARLIS/NA New York Secretary, at cwolff2@pratt.edu. The deadline to volunteer is February 25, 2022. No CV or letter of interest is required.
