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.
It is with mixed emotions that we will bid farewell to Presley Hubschmitt, who is leaving Stanford Libraries in mid-March to begin a position as Processing Archivist at the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley, her alma mater. She will be splitting her time between the Regatta facility in Richmond and the Berkeley campus. Her passion for her work and her fabulous sense of humor will be greatly missed. We are sad to lose our dear colleague, but happy that she will be working so close to her home.
