On behalf of the 2015 ARLIS/NA-SE Travel Award Committee, I am pleased to announce that Sara DeWaay is our 2015 ARLIS/NA-SE Professional Development Travel Award winner!
Sara is the Art & Architecture Librarian at the J. Murrey Atkins Library at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She will be presenting a poster on an in-progress project of redesigning a space in the Architecture Branch Library to have a multitude of uses for the library and campus as a whole! She also plans on including information about involving students in this process!
Sara is a member of ARLIS/NA and ARLIS/NA-SE, but a first time annual conference attendee. She’s excited to learn more about what’s happening in art librarianship and to make more connections with the chapter and the association.
Join us in congratulating Sara!

About the Mary Ellen LoPresti Award:
The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) is the largest international professional organization devoted to art librarianship. The Southeast Chapter of ARLIS/NA established the LoPresti Publication Award Competition in 1985 to recognize and encourage excellence in art publications issued in the Southeastern United States. The publication awards are named for Mary Ellen LoPresti, who was the Design Librarian at the Harrye B. Lyons Design Library, North Carolina State University, until her death in 1985. The winners are kept in the ARLIS/NA Southeast Chapter’s archives at Duke University.
This year’s judges were Caroline Barratt and Emily Luken (University of Georgia and LoPresti co-chairs), Teresa Burk (SCAD Atlanta), Courtney Baron (UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, Visual Resources Center), Melissa Tufts (UGA’s College of Environment and Design library). The judges examined 34 entries from 19 institutions to choose this year’s winners.
