Pat catalogs most monographic and serial publications purchased for the Smith College Libraries. She creates electronic resource records in the online catalog for many serial titles specifically those published on the JSTOR and Project Muse platforms.

The last 48 years of Pat's life has been spent here at Smith College in Neilson Library. She progressed from a lowly clerk to cataloger. It has been a real learning experience that was sometimes challenging and and other times fun. Pat worked with many wonderful people over this time. Many were involved with milestones in her life i.e. her 21st birthday, her first apartment and buying her home. These people were like extensions of her own family and are always remembered with great fondness.
