In June of 2016, the Brooklyn Museum purchased the correspondence of Jane Schenck Malbone and Ralph Malbone at a Swann Gallery auction. This exciting acquisition enriches the Library’s holdings of primary source and published documentation on the Schenck family, who were prominent Dutch farmers in Brooklyn and one of the first families to settle the area around 1650.
Megan De Armond, Assistant Digital and Metadata Librarian/NYARC Web Archiving Technician, and Coral Salomón, NYARC Web Archiving Fellow, currently work at The Frick Art Reference Library. Below, they discuss their first time attending an Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) Conference and what they learned from the experience.
A great deal has been accomplished since NYARC was established ten years ago. Let’s take a moment to briefly look at what we have achieved so far. First of all, none of what we have accomplished could have been possible without the support of our Museum Administrators and our respective Museum staff, especially our own dedicated and talented professional teams in our libraries and archives. We have been very lucky to have Lily Pregill as our NYARC Coordinator who has been key to making our collective work come together in a seamless way.
