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.


Albertsons Library Honors University Authors

On February 29, 2012 Albertsons Library will host a reception to honor several hundred Boise State University faculty and staff who have published books, articles, book chapters and other creative works during the 2010-2011 academic year. Research topics range from arsenic in South Asian groundwater to Idaho school principals; from setting up a smoking cessation website for pregnant teens to the effects of weather on raptor migration; from memory alloys to social networks.

The reception will be from 3:30 to 5 pm in the McCain Room on the Library's second floor. The recognition program will begin at 4:00 pm. Authors and all members of the University community are invited to attend. An author bibliography is available online at the Library’s website at http://scholarworks.boisestate.edu/uar/

Faculty and staff are encouraged to review the bibliography, as well as all the content in ScholarWorks, and to submit any works published between September 1, 2010 - August 31, 2011. Publication information can be sent to scholarworks@boisestate.edu

Please join us in celebrating and recognizing the scholarship and accomplishments of Boise State University faculty and staff.
