Introducing Laura Krueger

February 27, 2022

It gives me great pleasure to introduce Laura Krueger, our Cartographic Metadata Librarian. This introduction is belated, as she began August 16, 2021. Prior to joining the Center’s staff, Laura worked as a Graduate Academic & Research Assistant and volunteered as a reference librarian at Out on the Shelves, Vancouver’s only LGBT2QIA+ library. She did this while she worked on her Master’s in Library Information Studies that she got from the University of British Columbia (2020).

It gives me great pleasure to introduce Tyler Mitchell as the Center Services Supervisor at the David Rumsey Map Center. Truth be told this post is a long time in the coming, as Tyler joined us on April 14, 2021!  However, he is no stranger to the libraries, or indeed to Stanford. Before starting his tenure at the Center, he was Green Library’s Circulation and Interlibrary Services Library Specialist for a year and a half, and prior to that he was a Music Librarian Assistant at the Music Library.
