Kelly Gonzalez, MMH

McGoogan Library is happy to share that Kelly Gonzalez has joined the Robert S. Wigton Department of Special Collections and Archives (SCA) team as the new Archive Specialist. Kelly began her new role April 1. No stranger to the library, Kelly had served as an Education and Research Associate since February 2020. In that capacity she provided reference and circulation assistance for in-person and virtual library users, researched and responded to health information requests, authored digital subject guides, and liaised with the SCA department creating metadata and processing oral history interviews. Prior to working in libraries, Kelly held positions at the Sullivan Museum and History Center and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Kelly has a BA in history and an MA in military history from Norwich University. She also earned certificates in Consumer Health Information Specialist, Level 2, and Introduction to Records Management. 

When asked about her new role in the library, Kelly said, “The transition … lets me continue the great relationships I’ve made at McGoogan Library and UNMC while allowing me to return to my early career in preservation.” 

Kelly also shared that she is “excited to be able to help tell the stories of our users who I’ve come to know at the AskUs desk for the UNMC community of the future.” 

Congratulations on your new role, Kelly!
