Eighteen librarians enjoyed our spring program, a morning guided tour of the National Gallery of Art and an afternoon tour of the National Gallery’s library.
Heartfelt thanks go out to National Gallery Reference Librarian Anne Simmons, who arranged our visit. We also got to meet the following museum staff members, who shared their expertise and love of art and art librarianship with us:
- Heidi Applegate, Guest Lecturer
- Roger Lawson, Executive Librarian
- Yuri Long, Rare Book Librarian
- Gregory PJ Most, Chief of Library Image Collections
We hope that the following photos convey how much fun we had and how much we learned! And we hope to see you in a few months for our fall program, which we’ll begin planning shortly.
