The ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter congratulated Lauren Haberstock as the recipient of the 2020 Lois Swan Jones Professional Development Award.
Lauren Haberstock is a recent MLIS graduate of the University of Arizona. She is presenting a paper as part of the New Voices in the Professional panel at this year’s conference and will serve as co-conference liaison for ArLiSNAP. This will be her first ARLIS conference.
The $500 award will support expenses related to attending the ARLIS/NA annual conference in St. Louis, Missouri April 20-24, 2020.
The LSJ award honors the memory of Lois Swan Jones, Professor Emerita of art history at the University of North Texas and charter member of the Texas Chapter. Established in 1992, the award supports and encourages participation of a member of the ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter at the national level by helping with conference expenses. Professor Jones authored several standard publications on art information research methods and received the 1996 ARLIS/NA Distinguished Service Award. The combination of her enthusiasm, commitment to education, and love for art history serves as a model for art information professionals.
Thank you to our Chapter contributors who made this year’s award possible. For more information about the LSJ award, including a list of previous awardees, visit: http://texas-mexico.arlisna.org/lois-swan-jones-award/
