Hello! I am the map librarian at Branner Earth Sciences Library & Map Collections where I manage and provide reference support for our circulating collection of contemporary maps. I develop, oversee, and contribute to strategies for original and copy cataloging and digitization of newly acquired and backlogged cartographic and geospatial materials. I curate and create digital and physical exhibits highlighting our map collections to not only encourage research using maps but lifelong learning for all those curious. I am keen to create an interactive environment that engages and inspires our patrons while fulfilling their research needs and center my collection development and space planning decisions on this goal.

For more information on the map collections and how to navigate them, view our topic guide here.
