Re: Gerd Muehsam Award 2008
September 2008
I am writing to you on behalf of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) regarding an award opportunity relevant to your students. The ongoing goals of ARLIS/NA include increasing awareness of ARLIS/NA among library school students and encouraging library school students to consider art librarianship as a career.  To these ends, the Society is offering the Gerd Muehsam Award. This is an annual award of $500 (plus up to $300 additional travel reimbursement to attend our annual conference) for a student paper or web project focused on a topic relevant to art librarianship or visual curatorship.
As a member of the Gerd Muehsam Award Committee of ARLIS/NA, I urge you to pass on information of this award to your students. Students enrolled from last fall and spring and through the summer are eligible to apply. Details of the award follow this email. An announcement is also available on the ARLIS/NA web site at
To help our committee contact appropriate people in the future, please let me know the names and addresses of other faculty who might be interested in receiving this information and/or the means of contacting student listservs at your institution.
If you do not wish to be contacted about these kinds of awards or other matters of this nature, please let me know and I will remove you from our mailing list.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
