Introducing Laura Krueger
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). Prior to this, she received a Master’s in Theological Studies from Harvard University (2017) and during her time there worked as a Student Assistant for the Harvard Map Collection from 2015 to 2017.
She has brought all of these rich experiences to her position and has taken over the cataloging of maps at the Rumsey Map Center, as well as helped us tide over duties as we ramp up to bring in staff in open positions. In her spare time, Laura devotes herself to several hobbies, including reading, sewing, and photography. Please join me in welcoming her to the libraries as well as to Stanford and California!
