Congratulations to Anna Flinchbaugh on publishing a review of the Journey to the Sea Ranch website for the December Issue of ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America) Multimedia & Technology Reviews.
Anna Flinchbaugh wrote, “writing a review for ARLIS/NA’s Multimedia & Technology Reviews has been a friendly and approachable way to get more involved with a professional organization that I admire. ARLIS/NA provides a tremendous amount of support to the field of art librarianship through programming like events and conferences, professional development and networking opportunities, and resources like their reviews. The reviews help librarians to make informed decisions about which resources to recommend to their patrons. Reviewers are able to bring their expertise from other areas of their lives, creating a more robust pool of knowledge. In my case, I was fortunate to be reviewing a resource which connected to my interest in design history. I was able to further enrich my assessment of the website through conversations with friends in the field of sustainable design and planning. Writing the review has thus not only been an accessible way to dip a toe into academic publishing but also a great way to engage my community around information literacy”.
