Kai Alexis Smith

Kai interned at the National Gallery of Art (NGA) in Washington, D.C. She completed an internal digitization plan for the vertical files. She met and communicated with leaders in the field to benchmark her work and understand best practices. She proposed several options that NGA can take in implementing a digitization plan along with a digitization management plan with a prioritization schema. Through this experience, Kai was exposed to government and museum librarianship and had the opportunity to speak with leaders in the field and visit many museum libraries aside from NGA.
