Welcome our new Archivist Librarian!

Greetings! My name is Kent Randell and I am happy to join the team at Albertsons Library here in beautiful Boise. My undergraduate studies were in history and I am excited to serve as the library's liaison to the history department in the fall of 2012. I am particularly interested in American history as well as the immigrant and pioneer experience.

I received my Masters of Science in Information (an ALA-accredited Masters of Library Science), Archives and Records Management Concentration, from the University of Michigan, where I also worked at the Bentley Historical Library. Since graduation I have worked for the State of Nebraska Capitol Collections, my undergraduate alma mater Northern Michigan University, and Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan. I am happiest when digging through the Archives to assist a researcher on any topic. I can't wait to see more of the Idaho wilderness in any season as I am an avid snowshoer and hiker. I am also a music lover and relax by playing my guitar or mandolin.
