As the Research Services Archivist, Kate Long supports researchers near and far as they explore Smith Special Collections, which includes the Sophia Smith Collection of Women's History, College Archives, and Mortimer Rare Book Collection. Both in the library and online, Kate’s goal is to create a space that breaks down walls and welcomes all curious minds to use the collection to inform their research, artistic endeavors, or personal interests.
Outside of the library, Kate loves to learn all she can about historical food traditions through reading, cooking, and of course, eating (preferably at a table full of friends).
