Interdisciplinary Librarian • Librarians of the Future Program Resident
Organizational Development & Inclusive Practice

Katie Randall joined the University Libraries faculty in September 2023 as an Interdisciplinary Librarian in the inaugural cohort of the Librarians of the Future Diversity Residency Program. She supports students, faculty and researchers in the subject area of Native American and Indigenous Studies.

Katie’s responsibilities include collection development, instruction, and student engagement. Her research interests include the applications of sustainable practices to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in the University Libraries’ relationships across campus, through services to students and faculty. She is also interested in the impact of information literacy and primary source instruction for graduate and undergraduate students with a focus on non-Western and decolonized forms of knowledge, authority, and language. This curiosity stems from her experience with the creative, pedagogical challenges of embedding primary source materials across interdisciplinary curricula to broaden students’ comprehension of information literacy.  

An alum of the University of Colorado Boulder, Katie holds a PhD in History.
