Needs of the ARLIS/NA Archives

Luraine Tansey receives the Distinguished Service Award at the 1993 conference in San Francisco.

The ARLIS/NA Archives was established to document the history of the Art Libraries Society of North America Archives. To do so effectively, it seeks to acquire materials representing a wide range of ARLIS/NA functions and activities. The Archives is always looking for section and division records, including conference programs, correspondence, meeting minutes, meeting notices, newsletters, and section histories.  Personal papers of members illustrating their career-long service to ARLIS/NA are a particularly important source for ARLIS/NA history.

For more information about what the archives accepts, please consult the ARLIS/NA Archives Transfer Guidelines. If you are wondering how to go about donating your material, more information can be found on the How to Donate page.
