The ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter congratulated Quentin Pace as the recipient of the 2019 Lois Swan Jones Professional Development Award.
Quentin is a recent MSLS graduate of the University of North Texas and is the Supervisor of the Library Computer Lab at W.I. Dykes Library at the University of Houston-Downtown as well as a working artist.
The $750 award will support expenses related to attending the ARLIS/NA annual conference in Salt Lake City, March 26-30, 2019.
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/
