Map Librarian, Earth Sciences Library
BioHello! 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.

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.
