We are looking for one student representative from each of the University of Toronto Faculty of Information and the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Information and Media Studies. Student representatives are part of the Chapter Executive and are expected to represent the ARLIS/NA Ontario chapter to students at their respective institutions. Duties include: promoting the Chapter and art librarianship as a whole; assisting the Chapter with various fundraising, professional, and administrative events; and organizing student tours and/or events. It is an excellent opportunity to liaise with and meet art librarians in Ontario, and to gain exposure to the field of art librarianship. The time commitment is modest, but the exposure is invaluable.
