Map Librarian, Earth Sciences Library
BioHello! I am a map librarian at Branner Earth Sciences Library & Map Collections where I manage and provide reference support for our circulating collection of approximately 300,000 paper 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 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.
I give a monthly hands-on workshop on how to create Esri StoryMaps; the current model walks participants through how to utilize historical maps, images, and GIS data to create digital maps using ArcGIS Online which are then served through a multi-template StoryMap. I am most fulfilled when creatively thriving alongside our community and find that this platform is an intuitive way to digitally tell any story regardless of the discipline. Along with Julie Sweetkind-Singer and David Medeiros, our StoryMap titled Pancakes & Silver was awarded Esri's 2019 StoryMap of the Year. So come, let's get creative!

Liaison to Department of Special Collections, Hopkins Marine Station, East Asia Library
In my role as service manager I work with librarians, faculty, donors, and archivists to develop policies, workflows and procedures to acquire, preserve, and make born digital content available for researchers. This includes managing a budget to acquire lab technologies for our digital archivists and working with my Stanford colleagues to develop a catalog of services to support library acquisitions (see https://library.stanford.edu/research/digitization-services/labs/born-digital-forensics-lab). Current projects that are in process include implementation of the BitCurator Bulk Extractor in our production workflows, defining our security policies and audit processes for acquired content and automating the process for depositing our preserved software into the Stanford Digital Repository.
