The Greenfield Library had a very nice visit about two weeks ago from UArts Art Education graduate student Aaron Schnittman. Aaron made extensive use of the UArts Libraries’ staff and services throughout his academic career with us, from making appointments with the reference librarians to making extensive use of interlibrary loan, and stopped by to return all of his materials and say a sincere thank-you for all the assistance he received. It’s what we do in libraries, and we are happy to offer these services!
Aaron happens to be this year’s winner of the Art Education Department Graduate Education Committee Award for Excellence in Scholarship for his thesis, An Examination of the Self-Regulated Learning Process of Middle School Students in an Online Art Class. Coincidence that he also used the library more than once? We think not!
Aaron has been working full-time for years as an online art teacher, and found little research material concerned with his specialty. He hopes to publish his thesis as a scholarly journal article. Our congratulations and best wishes to Aaron and his publishing (and racing) future!
