Staff Tuesdays: Emily Siegel, Archives Assistant

Every Tuesday during the Fall semester, we will be introducing, or re-introducing, you to the wonderful (and adorable) Library staff that work to help students make the most of their academic experiences here at Rosemont College. 

This week, we'd like to introduce Emily Siegel, Archives Assistant.

As Archives Assistant, Ms. Siegel assists the Archivist with organizing and maintaining all the items in Rosemont College Archives. She works with the Archivist to help develop exhibits, both online and for the Archives display case in Kistler Library. She also works with Archives patrons both on and off-campus to find items or information about specific students and events in Rosemont's past. When she's not working in Rosemont College's Archives, she is working at the SHCJ Archives next to Gracemere. Let's learn a little bit more about Emily: 

If I run into you in the library, what would you typically be doing?

Setting up an exhibit on the main floor near the Front Reading Room

What is your favorite spot on campus, outside of the Library?

The garden outside of the library down the steps near the original entrance you can find me attempting to warm up from the cold Library.

Where do you spend most of your time while working in the Library?

Typically I’m in my office across from the upstairs lavatory

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Surprise surprise, I love to read (historical) fiction

What is your favorite part about working in Kistler Library?

I love to see the diligent work as students race to meet deadlines. It reminds me of my own college experiences at Rosemont.  

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I was planning to enter the US Air Force before I decided to attend college (at Rosemont).
