Carrie Salazar, Librarian at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University

Carrie Salazar (Librarian at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University) will discuss the contents of a specialized art library, the difficulties of building an inclusive collection, and the research practices of artists who produce and utilize the collection. Salazar will travel with selected items from the Library at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and will provide a structured hands-on activity, enabling attendees to engage critically with materials and content to practice formulating research questions. The program is open to all and will be specifically interesting and useful to first year students and the Department of Art, as well as offices and student organizations concerned with diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in academic libraries.

Carrie Salazar has been a librarian for over ten years and is currently at her dream job as the Librarian at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Originally from Miami, Salazar is a first-generation college graduate and daughter of a Cuban immigrant. Growing up in Miami, among a large immigrant population, has defined and shaped her approach in librarianship. She feels strongly about listening to and advocating for students who have not been traditionally represented in academia. She works collaboratively with students, wanting to empower them to become agents of change.
