Chapter Assessment Survey

We need your help! In an effort to best serve our membership and establish a strategic direction for the Chapter, we are asking all area information professionals working in the field of art and/or architecture librarianship to fill out this short chapter assessment survey. You do not have to be a member of ARLIS/NA or ARLIS/DMV to complete the survey.

Even though most of the questions are open-ended, it should only take about 10 minutes to complete. All answers will be delivered anonymously and only used by ARLIS/DMV Chapter Officers. We value your opinions and feedback regarding the Chapter and greatly appreciate your participation in the survey. You will see the survey advertised other places but please only complete it once.

Take the survey here:

Thank you for your thoughts and opinions!

Call for Publication Proposals

WALRC, the Washington Art Library Resources Committee, has funding available for publications relating to the Art Historical and Architectural Collections of Washington, D.C. area libraries.
