Presented at the New England Technical Services Librarians Annual Conference (April 8, 2022)


Art allows us to translate information into a format that others can engage with and understand creatively. I’ll discuss a library community-organizing embroidery project that I launched to share the experiences of catalogers and metadata professionals, with the goal to gain support and advocacy from our non-technical services colleagues. The pieces resulted in an exhibition, currently on display, which showcases the works of librarians from 20 states, Canada and the United Kingdom.
