Jamie Lausch Vander Broek
I am the interim Librarian for Art & Design as well as a Learning Librarian and Exhibits & Programming Librarian. I work with the Stamps School of Art & Design to support the information needs of their students, faculty, and staff. I also develop and coordinate exhibits and programs, teach classes on Library resources, and provide reference service both in person and online (if you Ask a Librarian, you might get me!). I am involved in digital signage governance on campus, and I chair the Library's Exhibits and Programming Group.
Previously, I was the Programming Coordinator for the University's North Quad building, an internationally-themed academic and residential complex. Prior to that, I was the Curatorial Research Center Librarian at UMMA and a University Library Associate at the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library.
I have a Master's degree from the UM School of Information in Art and Art Museum Librarianship, and I received a BA in Art History with a minor in Italian Studies from Wellesley College. Since arriving in Ann Arbor in June of 2005, I have been active in the local art and book communities.
I am also active in ARLIS/NA, the Art Libraries Society of North America. I am currently a member of the Strategic Planning Committee and Education Subcommittee of the Professional Development Committee. In March I will begin a term as secretary of the ARLIS/NA Executive Board.
