Kim Rinaldo: Who I Am

Research and Collections Librarian

Kim Rinaldo


Hello everyone.  I am a relatively new face in the library: I was hired as a Research and Collections Librarian in January.  Till now I have worked a great deal on the back end of the library's new systems, but I am very much looking forward to working with new and returning students!  My door is almost always open, so feel free to stop in and say hello!
