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.

Lydia Wei's fantastical campus map

Lydia Wei's "Stanford: Campus of the Unknown"

June 28, 2021

What was it like to be a freshman this year, this strangest of years? Learning remotely from her home in Maryland, Stanford freshman Lydia Wei began to feel a bit like Medieval mapmakers, who had to imagine far-off lands that they never visited. In this spirit, she spent her winter break creating a map of the Stanford campus.
