The seventh bio in the series on the panelists and moderators at Fashion: Now & Then, a symposium at LIM College.
Rachel King had a 15-year career in publishing before beginning the M.S.I.S. program at SUNY/Albany in 2006. She started as a lexicographer at Merriam-Webster, and then went on to work in nearly all branches of the industry: book publishing (Houghton Mifflin), scholarly publishing (Kluwer Academic Publishers), magazine publishing (Art & Antiques) and new media (mixedgreens.com). She graduated from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in 1996. From the late 1990s until 2006, Rachel worked primarily as a freelancer, doing lengthy stints at Microsoft, sothebys.com, and SELF.
While studying at SUNY, she worked for both the Preservation Unit and the Conservation Lab of the New York State Library. She also interned at the New York State Archives. From 2008 to 2010, Rachel was the Information Services Librarian at Manhattan College, where she taught information literacy and where she first noticed and became interested in the dearth of visual materials for students doing research on consumer magazines, advertising, and other mass communication topics. She is currently an Evening Librarian at LIM College.
