I am now a member of the American Library Association (ALA), and the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA), with a pending membership in the Art Libraries Society, Southeast Division (ARLIS/SE). I'm debating which of these to join, if any: American Alliance of Museums (AAM), Museum Computer Network (MCN), Society of American Archivists (SAA), Special Libraries Association (SLA), and the Visual Resources Association (VRA). I'm not exactly sure at this point what good membership in any of these organizations is going to do me, but I HEAR it's important to get involved and get informed, so I guess that's what I'm trying to do. And I hate to say it, but this (http://www.imagearts.ryerson.ca/photopreservation/) is still looking painfully attractive. Painfully.
