Returning for its eleventh year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship 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 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, ArLiSNAP, the Gerd Muehsam Award Committee, and the Sotheby's Institute of Art Research Award Committee.
