What Our Members Are Saying: John Latour

John Latour

Librarian, Artexte

It was while working as a library assistant at the National Gallery of Canada in the early 1990s when I first heard of ARLIS. My supervisor at the time, Peter Trepanier, recommended I join ARLIS to have a better understanding of the art library community at large. I became a member of the local chapter of the association (now ARLIS/NA MOQ) after I enrolled in library school at McGill University in the mid-1990s. It was also while I was a student that I attended my first ARLIS annual conference, as a volunteer, when it was held in Montreal in 1995 – thanks in large part to Marilyn Berger, who was Co-chair of the conference and my immediate supervisor at McGill University’s Blackader-Lauterman Library of Architecture and Art.
