Mary L. Larsgaard

Mary Lynette Larsgaard is Assistant Head of the Map and Imagery Laboratory, Davidson Library, University of California at Santa Barbara. The Map and Imagery Lab at UCSB has a collection of remote-sensing imagery and maps of approximately 4.5 million items, and is the largest of its kind in any university library in North America. Mary has published extensively in the field of spatial data in the libraries, most notably with a widely used text, Map Librarianship: an Introduction (now in a third edition, published in 1998 by Libraries Unlimited). Her specialties within that broad area are cataloging/metadata creation, and twentieth-century and more recent topographic and geologic maps. She is internationally recognized as an authority in this area of librarianship. Mary received a B.A. in geology from Macalester College, an M.A. in library science from the University of Minnesota, and an M.A. in geography from the University of Oregon. Before coming to UCSB in 1988, she was the map librarian and later Assistant Director for Special Collections at the Arthur Lakes Library, Colorado School of Mines.

Linda Zellmer

Linda Zellmer is Head of the Geology Library at Indiana University. She has a BA degree with a dual major in geology and biology from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, an MA degree in Marine Science from The College of William and Mary and a Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Prior to her present position at Indiana University, she has held library positions at Oklahoma State University, the University of Wyoming, Arizona State University.

Linda is active in several national and regional professional library associations including the Western Association of Map Libraries, American Library Association, Special Library Association, and Geoscience Information Society. She is currently edits the Western Association of Map Libraries Information Bulletin and serves as WAML Webmistress. Ten years ago, she had to make a difficult choice: she could either take a formal class on Geographic Information Systems at the University of Wyoming or attend the WAML meeting in Hawaii. She chose to take the GIS class. As a result, Linda has experience with Geographic Information Systems and spatial data, and has a strong interest in the archiving of spatial data.
