Congratulations to the Chicago Area Archivists 2020 Member of the Year Award winner Carol Ng-He! 

Carol initiated the Curating and Exhibitions Interest Group, recognizing that there was not a local professional group focused on exhibits and displays in libraries, archives, and special collections institutions. Since its official inception in 2019, she has recruited nearly 40 individuals to the group, and hosted four programs both on site and virtually to maximize impacts and attendance. 

By identifying a local need for our profession and working within CAA to provide opportunities for members, Carol has contributed to the growth of the CAA community and expanded professional development and scholarship.

Congratulations Carol! Her win was announced at Wednesday's members meeting. Carol will receive a framed Member of the Year certificate. For more information on both the Member of the Year Award and the Janet Olson Award, check out the Awards page. 

Carol Ng-He is currently the Exhibits Coordinator at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. She was formerly the School and Community Program Manager at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Aside from her involvement with CAA, she also co-leads the Exhibitions Special Interest Group and serves on various committees at the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA). Carol has published articles and chapters on library exhibitions, art and museum education, and community art development in the Journal of Museum Education, Teaching Artist Journal, and Visual Inquiry, among others. Carol holds an MA in Art Education from the School of the Art Institute is Chicago and a certificate in Museum Studies from Northwestern University. Carol is a 2019 ALA Spectrum Scholar and a MLIS candidate at San Jose State University.
