A lighthearted video for the ArLiSNAP Co-Moderator opportunity. It is meant to be taken in the context of the text below. Of course, on the internet, contextualization might be wishful thinking.


Dear ArLiSNAPers,

Please consider my candidacy for our Co-Moderator position. I wish to be considered for numerous reasons, but, most importantly, I wish to be an integral part of the progressive voice we’ve become.

In 2006, I partnered with an incredible team to find a platform which would create a community and empower LIS students and new professionals. From naming to promotion to structuring our site, I’ve been and active part of ArLiSNAP.

As a new professional and recently minted librarian, I understand our needs. I’ve worked in public, academic, and corporate libraries, and I’ve crafted my own LIS educational experience to focus on art librarianship as well as library management.

As an active member of ARLIS/NA’s Membership Committee, I have functioned as a representative for ArLiSNAP. I designed an ArLiSNAP flyer that is part of ARLIS/NA’s new member welcoming kit, and I made sure that a student perspective was considered during our recent membership dues increase. As Co-Moderator, I would continue to work with Membership as well as other committees to explore future collaborative possibilities.

ArLiSNAP is positioned to an important voice within ARLIS/NA and beyond. We have the unique opportunity to be the future leaders within our organization and profession. We’ve made great strides as a group already. With due diligence, we can innovate the way we learn, communicate, and participate in a global context.

Your vote will enable me to promote our interests and facilitate our continued success.

If you have any questions, or wish me to clarify my statements, please feel free to post your comments or questions below, or e-mail me directly at bryan [at] theloars [dot] com
