WESTFORD, Massachusetts – The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) announces historic support from The Samuel H. Kress Foundation and The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation to fund attendee travel to the society’s 51st annual conference from April 18-21, 2023, in Mexico City, Mexico.


A milestone occasion for the ARLIS/NA, this is the first time the society will meet outside Canada or the United States. Members of the Conference Planning Advisory Committee recognized the increased need for travel support above and beyond the existing travel awards program and secured $15,000 from the Kress Foundation and $12,000 from the Delmas Foundation. Support from the Kress Foundation will provide thirty $500 awards for conference participants, and support from the Delmas Foundation will offer sixteen $750 awards for new members, first-time conference attendees, or attendees from Latin America.


This is the first time the society has received foundation funding for a single conference with the objectives of expanding the organization's reach and increasing access to art-related bibliographic resources across the Americas.
