Established in March of 2011, the Fashion, Textile & Costume (FTC) Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) is a forum for sharing ideas pertinent to fashion, textile & costume librarianship.  Participants will capitalize on the shared experiences and knowledge of the FTC library community.  The group is primarily composed of members from academic, public, museum and corporate libraries concerned with developing professional skills in areas such as reference, library instruction, and collection development.
