Maryland Institute College of Art
Digital Initiatives Librarian
Baltimore, MD
Jennifer Ferretti is the Digital Initiatives Librarian at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a first-generation American Latina whose librarianship is guided by critical perspectives and anti-neutrality. She has spent ten years in libraries, museums, and archives digitizing materials, curating exhibitions, and processing collections. With a firm belief that art is information, she is interested in the research methodologies of artists, particularly those highlighting social justice issues. Recognizing the impact of the overwhelming whiteness of the library and information science profession, she started the online space 'we here' specifically for people of color working in libraries and archives. Jennifer is a 2018 Library Journal Mover & Shaker.
