Cullman 3rd Library and The Dibner Library of the History of Science and Technology as well as with the other branches of the Smithsonian Libraries with rare material. Katie contributes to the Librarie's monthly blog post, The Fix, highlighting conservation treatments. She feels she has the best job in the Smithsonian but her colleagues may disagree.
In her spare time Katie teaches bookbinding through The Smithsonian Associates. She can also be found haunting vintage stores throughout the D.C. area adding to her collection of pens, comic books and McCoy pottery.
