Returning for its fourteenth year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship or visual resources the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master's thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLIS or Master's programs leading to a career in art librarianship or visual resources, or those within five years of Master's level study. The New Voices session is organized by the Professional Development Committee, ArLiSNAP, and the Gerd Muehsam Award Committee.

Lauren Haberstock, "Participatory Description: Decolonizing Descriptive Methodologies in Archives," discusses the existing state of archival description and makes recommendations for areas in which decolonizing methodologies might be employed to better address the nuances of multicultural, community, and participatory archives.

Meghan Lyon, "Digital Embodiments of Artists’ Archives: Digitized Collections and their Web-based Platforms," discusses the presentation and organization of digitized materials and analogous records from artists’ archives on the web considering the disruption of the hierarchical arrangement associated with archival description.

Janna Singer-Baefsky, "Why Have There Been No Great Art Libraries: The Role of Radical Cataloging in the Reassessment of Art History," discusses how, if at all, radical cataloging can restructure the art library to mimic our current reassessment of the history of art.

Andrew Wang, "Reimagining Critical Information Literacy Instruction for Interdisciplinary Art and Design Upperclassmen" discusses a scaffolded two-part lesson plan for junior and senior Visual Studies students that incorporates open-ended, interactive activities that critically adapts two frames from ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
