ARLIS/NA Mid-Atlantic

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Art Libraries Society of North America

Month: December 2015

Can you help Gregory?

GreggThis is Gregory. He is an Art Librarian at a prominent museum. But he has a secret that he tries to hide from his colleagues. He is addicted to purchasing ARLIS/NA merchandise from the CafePress store. He says he can stop at any time and that the profits go to a good cause*, but he is kidding himself. He fantasizes about even more objects with an ARLIS/NA logo. Please help Gregory and others like him by purchasing ARLIS/NA merch so that he can stop.

*Proceeds from the sale of ARLIS/NA merchandise sold through the ARLIS/NA Mid-Atlantic Chapter’s CafePress store will be used to support the third joint ARLIS/NA+VRA conference in Seattle and the Chapter’s Caroline Backlund Travel Award.
