Returning for its thirteenth year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship or visual resources the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master's thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLIS or Master's programs leading to a career in art librarianship or visual resources, or those within five years of Master's level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement.

This panel began at the ARLIS/NA 2006 Annual Conference in Banff and has since received wide attention and praise. Topics presented reveal new ideas as well as different ways of thinking about established concepts. Speakers give the conference attendees a glimpse of academic interests and current discourses of the newest ARLIS/NA members. The New Voices session is organized by the Professional Development Committee and ArLiSNAP.

This year's selected speakers are:

Renee Bedard, MLIS Candidate at University of Denver
"You Can’t Use What You Can’t Find: Promoting Discovery, Access, and Use of Public Art"

Kristina Bush, MLIS Candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"The Visitor Experience: Understanding Student's Experience of the African Art Gallery at the Ackland Art Museum"

Kirsten Painter, MLIS Candidate at University of Washington
"Fairytales & the Five-Year Plan: An Online Exhibit of Rare Russian Children's Books at University of Washington Special Collections"
