Branner Earth Sciences Library and Map Collections is pleased to welcome Julie Sweetkind as its Map and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Librarian. Julie replaces Jean Kan, who retired in December.

Some of you will remember Julie as a summer intern at Branner in 1998, where she worked on map and GIS projects. She has a BA in History and English, an MBA from the University of Colorado, and an MLIS from San Jose State University. Most recently, Julie was map librarian at two private map collections: the David Rumsey Collection in San Francisco, and the Glen McLaughlin Collection in Saratoga. Both are large, significant collections of historic maps. The Rumsey Collection contains more than 6,000 pieces devoted to cartography of the 18th and 19th century North and South America and is in the process of being digitally scanned for online access (www.davidrumsey.com). The McLaughlin Collection contains over 500 maps and books dating from 1620-1800 that show California as an island. Sweetkind served as assistant editor for a recent California Map Society book California 49: Forth-nine Maps of California from the Sixteenth Century to the Present. She has also worked in the library of Elan Pharmaceuticals in South San Francisco, and for Information Express, the Buckinghamshire County Council Literacy Program in England, for Bendall Accounting in Campbell, and the VITA Shakespeare Festival in Saratoga. She has given presentations on her cartographic projects at meetings of the Western Association of Map Libraries, the California Map Society and the Book Club of California.

Julie can be reached at julie.sweetkind@stanford.edu or 725-1103. Please join us in welcoming her to SUL.
