Meet Nimisha Bhat, New Visual Arts Librarian

Nimisha Bhat

We’re excited to welcome Nimisha Bhat, the new Visual Arts Librarian. Nimisha is Hillyer Art Library's subject librarian and a member of the joint Libraries-ITS Learning, Research & Technology department. She promotes methodologies and tools of the visual arts for research, teaching, and learning, as well as engaging the art community in learning about library services, collections, facilities, and technologies. As the Art librarian, Nimisha provides visual arts research and learning support to students, faculty, and staff through a critical and intersectional lens.

Before coming to Smith, Nimisha worked at several major art museum libraries including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the Frick Collection. She also interned for Marvel Comics as a graduate student. Outside of work she loves reading, biking, and listening to music & podcasts.
