Lois Swan Jones Award Recipients

The ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter is pleased to announce Lindsey Jackson as the recipient of the 2022 Lois Swan Jones Award. This $1000 award supports attendance at the 50th ARLIS/NA annual conference held in Chicago April 4-9, 2022.Lindsey is currently the User Services Associate at University of Texas – Austin’s Fine Arts Library, where she also supports the work of the Foundry Makerspace and has the opportunity to flex her crafting skills. A 2020 MLS graduate, Lindsey was able to take interesting courses like art museum education, special libraries, and graphic novels to inspire her art librarianship career goals. When Lindsey is not working, she is playing the trombone in a local brass band or planning the local Honk!TX festival as a board member. Or she is taking care of her two dogs and dozens of plants.

The committee was impressed with Lindsey’s commitment to a building a career in Art Librarianship, as well as her active participation in our Chapter and as a member of the Planning Committee for the 2023 ARLIS/NA Conference in Mexico City. 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: https://texas-mexico.arlisna.org/loisswanjones-award/
