“I am a connector and I think I can help Emory become more of a gateway to Atlanta.” – Lolita Rowe

Lolita Rowe is the new community outreach archivist for the Rose Library. She spent the past eleven years being a jack-of-all-trades in the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, including four years in the special collections archive, where she was the reference and outreach coordinator. She handled the social media for special collections, met with various community members, was the chair of a community group that researches African-American history, and acquired the papers of Thereasea Elder, who was a pioneer of African-American nurses. She also spent two years doing circulations and event planning in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Library System.

A native of Swansea, SC, Lolita earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from Winthrop University and her master’s degree of library and information sciences from the University of South Carolina. She is also a member of the Georgia Archives Institute.

Lolita loves Broadway shows, festivals, and doing different things all the time. She also enjoys learning about different cultures, history, and art.

“When I tell people I am working at Emory, there is a sense of awe,” said Lolita. “Emory has prestige and possibility. I am a connector and I think I can help Emory become more of a gateway to Atlanta.”
