This month’s member’s spotlight features Rachel Turner. She is a Cataloging Librarian at Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY.
Rachel, tell us what type of library do you work in?
Academic research institution
How long have you been a member of ACRL/Arts Section?
Describe your position and what you like best about it.
I am a cataloger, mostly of original and unusual materials and books. I enjoy working on these unique items. Additionally, I currently am in charge of the arts subject collections duties. I enjoy this very much as well.
What are you reading or what is the latest exhibition you have seen?
I haven’t been to an exhibition in a little while, but I really want to see Yayoi Kusama’s infinity mirrors.
Tell us about the arts related activities you are involved in outside of librarianship.
I am a member of the exhibits committee at the library, and am currently the chair of a subcommittee that liaises with professors and other professionals or students at the university who want to make an exhibit in the libraries but don’t really have much other than an idea. I work with them to help plan, put together, and maintain their exhibits.
Finally, please describe your vision for ACRL/Arts Section in three words.
