As the Earth Sciences, GIS and Map Librarian, I support the students and faculty of the Mackay School of Earth Science and Engineering. These include Geography, Geological Science and Engineering, and Mining & Metallurgical Engineering. I help users find, access, evaluate and utilize resources to support the learning, teaching and research needs. As the Map and GIS librarian, I help users locate physical or digital maps and assist users with multiple GIS (Geographical Information Systems) software and tools across campus. Individual consultation and workshops are available upon request.
