Jen Krivickas


My name is JENNIFER KRIVICKAS. I am a tenured member of the faculty at the University of Cincinnati, Head of the Robert A. Deshon & Karl J. Schlachter Library for Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), and Instructor of two transdisciplinary courses offered by the College of DAAP: ArtLIVE (DAAP School of Art/ARTE1009) and Documenting a Fashion Icon: The UC Bonnie Cashin Collection (DAAP School of Design/FASH2099c).

I earned my MSLIS from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and an ALB from Harvard University. I am a regular art book reviewer for Library Journal, published work in Art Documentation, The VRA Bulletin, ArtsGuide (ACRL), Magazines for Libraries, and Art Libraries Journal. Most recently (2015), I collaborated with DAAP Faculty to curate and exhibition and publish, β€œIn the Public Interest: The Life and Work of Planning Pioneer Ladislas Segoe (1894–1983)”, a corresponding exhibition catalog, website, and digital collection. I regularly curate exhibitions at the DAAP Library and have presented papers and moderated panels at IFLA, ARLIS/NA, ARLIS/OV, The New York Art Book Fair (2013), The International Textile & Apparel Association annual conference (2014), and at LIM College Conference, Fashion: Now & Then: Meaning, Media, and Mode (2013). I am the keeper and curator of the DAAP Library Special Collection, a collection with 20th-century avant-garde artist publications and steward of the UC Bonnie Cashin Collection, a collection of 200+ historical garments designed by notable American Sportswear pioneer, Bonnie Cashin (1908-2000).
