Berg Fashion Library Newsletter Promotes ARLIS FTC SIG!

Having done little to promote our FTC SIG abroad, I was astounded this week to find our international membership had suddenly grown.  A new FTC SIG member from The Amsterdam Fashion Institute kindly informed me that Berg Fashion Library has promoted our new group in their newsletter!  (Read the text, below.*)  Our very sincere thanks go out to Kathryn Earle and the hardworking people at Berg!  We appreciate the plug and warmly welcome our new international members!

*Special Interest Group for Librarians: Get Involved 
Announcing a new initiative of interest to librarians with fashion collections: a new
Special Interest Group (SIG) for Fashion, Textile and Costume (FTC) Librarians
has been approved by the Executive Board of ARLIS (NA). This is a forum
for sharing issues pertinent to FTC librarianship. Participants will
capitalize on the shared experiences and knowledge of the FTC library
community. The group is composed of members from (but not limited to) academic,
public, museum and corporate libraries concerned with developing and promoting
professional competence in areas such as reference, library instruction, and
collection development.   If you are interested in becoming a member of the SIG, please subscribe to the new FTC SIG blog:   (Berg Fashion Library Newsletter – June 14, 2011.)
