Lauren Gavin is the Technical Services and Reference Librarian at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library, LIM College. She has a Master of Library Science from Queens College-City University of New York and a Bachelor of Business Administration from LIM College. Before becoming a Librarian, she worked in the fashion industry in merchandising and management. Lauren’s research interests are split between libraries and fashion and she is fortunate to have both of these areas supported in her work at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library. Of particular interest to her is the Breton striped shirt and its place in fashion and popular culture. She has presented on this topic multiple times, including a paper at the Popular Culture Association, 2015 Annual Conference in the Fashion, Style, Appearance, Consumption and Design area.
Lauren will assume moderator duties at the end of ARLIS-NA’s Annual Conference in 2017.
