Louise Jones

Director of Research Experience


Louise is in charge of connecting the dots. As leader of the Research Experience team, it is her responsibility to help connect researchers to the collections and resources they need, whether that is through the Martin F. Schmidt Research Library, the pages of The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society or the Civil War Governors of Kentucky, Digital Documentary Edition. Louise brings to her work a broad range of experiences in making collections accessible to the public through research services, programs, community events and online publications. One highlight of her career while working at KHS has been helping to index the 1940 Census, where she actually got to index the page showing her great, great grandmother.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, Master of Library Science degree and attended Developing History Leaders @SHA.
