Jennings Library Welcomes a New Librarian!

Kim Reamer, MLIS, recently joined the Jennings Library as the new Reference Services/Archives Librarian. In addition to maintaining the University Archives, she will also be the new liaison to History, Political Science, Music, Art, and Religion and Philosophy.

Kim received her MLIS from Rutgers University, and a BA in History and Visual Arts from SUNY New Paltz. She has worked in both archives and reference positions in academic libraries. Kim’s favorite part of being an archivist is being able to discover unique pieces of institutional history and share them with the public, while also preserving them for years to come.

Her hobbies include reading fantasy and mythology books, baking, and spending time with her dog Zelda.
