Fall 2022 Gear-Up for Science Data

September 25, 2022
by Alma Elizabeth Parada

Working with science data can be tough! Real datasets are often complex, with each type of data bringing along it its own needs for quality control, management, and analysis. Feeling overwhelmed? You're not alone!

The Stanford Libraries and the Lane Medical Library are very excited to announce that the Fall 2022 Gear-Up will focus on dealing with real data in the sciences. This event will consist of a series of virtual and hybrid workshops over 3 days, Monday - Wednesday October 10-12, culminating in an in-person research symposium and social hour on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

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.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce Kristina Larsen, our Assistant Rare Map Librarian at the David Rumsey Map Center. Kristina started on Feb 1, 2022. Prior to joining us, Kristina worked as a program manager on a variety of hardware prototyping projects at X, the moonshot factory (Google X) from 2016 to ‘18 and again from 2019 to ‘21. Before that, she worked as a project manager on exhibition development projects at the Exploratorium from 2007 to 2016. Clearly I have highlighted just a few roles in a long and illustrious professional career.

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.

Stanford Libraries has so many maps in its collection, but not enough Yelp reviews to help you figure out which ones you should look at. We are here to help.
