Returning for a sixth year, the New Voices panel provides new Art Librarianship and Visual Resources professionals the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master’s thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLS or Master’s programs leading to a career in librarianship or visual resources, or those 5 years post Master’s level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement.

This panel was begun at the ARLIS/NA 2006 conference in Banff and has received wide attention and praise since. Topics presented reveal new ideas, as well as different ways of thinking about old problems, and give the conference attendees a glimpse of the academic interests and current discourses of the newest ARLIS/NA members. The New Voices session was organized by Jenna Rinalducci and Maggie Portis on behalf of the Professional Development Committee.  This year, one speaker is the 2012 Gerd Muesham award winner and additional speakers were chosen through cooperation with ArLiSNAP or Muesham committee finalists.
