The Fashion, Textile, and Costume Special Interest Group has been lucky to have two volunteers to step into the vice moderator position for the 2017-2018 year. We would like to thank them for their service and introduce them to the group. In this post, I will be introducing Jennifer Yao Weinraub, Reference Librarian, The New School.
Jennifer Yao Weinraub has been a research and instruction librarian at The New School for eight years. She is the library’s liaison to Parsons School of Design’s undergraduate and graduate programs in fashion design and fashion studies, among other programs. Previously, Jen was an art librarian at the New York Public Library. She has a BA in Economics from UC Berkeley, and a MS in Library and Information Science and MS in Art History from Pratt. Jen contributed an interview with the founder of Videofashion, Anne Adami, to the Parsons School of Fashion blog. She is on the Bloomsbury Fashion Central Advisory Board.
Our Vice Moderators will be working with our Moderator, Lauren Gavin, to plan various professional development opportunities for our members throughout the year as well as plan a session proposal for the 2018 conference in New York City.
We are always looking for members to contribute in other ways. If you are interested in these opportunities, please contact Lauren Gavin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
