Skidmore News

Bored with your usual YouTube stream? Already binge-watched the latest from Netflix? Lost your cousin's HBO password?


Here's something a little different: we pulled together some fast-paced, interesting and occasionally even down-right inspiring videos about life here at Skidmore. This may not hold you over until Season 8 of "Game of Thrones," but you'll at least get a good feel for the Skidmore vibe.

Jane Kjaer works as a curator in the Special Collections and Rare Books Department of the Scribner Library.


Kjaer said, “When a position opened up in Skidmore’s library, it was a no-brainer to apply and I have never regretted it. Skidmore is a vibrant campus. I love what I do and I get to meet interesting people while pursuing some of my own interests.”
