For decades, Philip and Jean Earl documented the tree carvings created by Basque sheepherders, preserving this unique intersection of art, culture, and nature. In 2022 the Earl Collection of Basque Arborglyphs began their journey to their forever home within the Jon Bilbao Basque Library. The collection, comprising more than 130 wax-on-muslin rubbings made directly from the carvings, has been inventoried by Libraries experts.

Supporting and celebrating sustainability researchers and students

DeLaMare's GIS data services consultations and programming continued to be heavily utilized by and impactful for students and researchers in disciplines working directly on issues of sustainability and the changing environment. More than 60 percent were from disciplines that focus in these critical research areas.

The second annual GIS Day celebration took place in November and was led by the DeLaMare Library’s Data Services team in collaboration with the departments of Natural Resources and Environmental Science and Geography.

GIS Day provided opportunities for researchers to share work produced utilizing GIS, learn from one another, and build the campus community around GIS as a tool for analysis and visualization. Many of the researchers involved come from areas in environmental sciences, geosciences, ecology, hydrology and other disciplines focused on the changing natural world.
