Sharad Shah

Smithsonian Institution
Collections Management Librarian
Washington D.C. Metro Area
Sharad splits the bulk of his time working at both the National Air & Space Museum (NASM) and the Museum Support Center (MSC), with occasional visits to the National Museum of American History (NMAH), National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), and the Smithsonian Libraries Research Annex (SILRA), and any other locations in need of collections management.

Prior to joining the Smithsonian, Sharad (rhymes with "Jared") spent four years working in the Library of Congress's Rare Books and Special Collections Division (RBSCD) and the U.S. Copyright Office. Before moving to the DC-Metro area, he lived in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he worked as an archivist, historical consultant, and in special collections at UNC-Wilmington's William Randall Library, the New Hanover County Public Library, and the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History.

In his free time, Sharad enjoys traveling, reading history-related topics, hitting the gym, rooting for his Philadelphia teams (go, Eagles/Flyers/Phillies/Sixers!), playing video games (fan of Fallout and Red Dead Redemption), and binge-watching Netflix and HBO.
