My name is Angie Cope and I am a Senior Academic Librarian at the American Geographical Society Library at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Libraries. I have an M.L.I.S. from UW – Milwaukee ; an M.S. in Resource Planning and a B.S. in Geography both from Southwest Missouri State University (SMSU).
In my current position, I am principally a catalog librarian – cataloging maps, atlases and geospatial data. My secondary responsibilities include collection development. I also assist with outreach, reference, web page maintenance and other projects around my library. For more information on my library, visit me here: AGS Library
I also moderate a popular map librarian discussion list called Maps-L. The list maintain an subscribership of around 1,000 people from around the world. The topics discussed include anything related to map librarianship. Often the list is a bit of an announcement board but frequently serves as a great place to pose questions to colleagues. Issues relating to cataloging, air photos, scanning policies, government map index availability or interpreting unusual map codes are examples of what has been discussed in the past. For more information on Maps-L, take a look here: Maps-L Info
I’m looking forward to guest blogging in May of 2007 and being a part of FGI.
