Kate is working on her PhD in English, and teaches classes when she's not managing our many organization details. She calls herself the "Mystical Wizard of All Things Picky," and is the one we turn to when we need to know the status of a partially worked collection that has languished untouched since olden times. She also creates spreadsheets for metadata input on new collections, organizes our digital shared space, helps determine and enforce policies for maintaining some order and progress, performs quality control checks on metadata and images. Beyond that, she has been known to track down physical content deep in the stacks, consult with Hoole personnel to determine best practices and solutions to difficult problems, and more. When we need organization, clarity, or solutions to detail problems, Kate is our Woman Of Choice. Where would we be without her?
