map librarian | traveler | geography geek | budding francophile

I am the Curator at the American Geographical Society Library, one of North America's premier map and geography libraries.

A Geographer for sixteen years and a Librarian for ten years, I'm passionate about access to all information, but particularly geographic information and providing the easiest means for access possible. In that vein, my research focuses on the use of linked data and the semantic web to connect special collections within and across institutions for the benefit of the public.

I am also interested in how the use of visual search interfaces can enhance and lead to increased efficiency in information seeking.
