Brynn Kramer and Meagan Trott: Conrad Collection on Dutch Waterways


Amongst our map team here at Stanford Libraries, we have several part-time members who we just wish so badly were full-time. Their dedication and contributions are invaluable, undoubtedly being the individuals behind the curtain keeping this show on the road.

Brynn Kramer and Meagan Trott have long been two of these employees, and it is with great excitement that the entire map team welcomes and presents them as our project team for processing and cataloging the cartographic portion of the Conrad Collection on Dutch Waterways.
