Position:  Special Collections Catalog Librarian

Length of Service:  24 years

What she does:
UNLV Libraries’ Special Collections is the world’s premier repository of the history and culture of Las Vegas and the gaming industry. With holdings that surpass 50,000 items, Rankin plays a key role in organizing this rich conglomeration and makes it easy to find. She compiles information on these materials, produces a bibliographic record that identifies every book, archival collection, map, and document in detail—from the author, title, subject and publication data of a book to the many components associated with donated personal and corporate collections. “One of the most unique items I was asked to catalog was a piece of copper cable from Hoover Dam,” she recalls.
