About the Moderators:
Robbie Sittel is the Government Information Librarian at the University of North Texas. She oversees the Eagle Commons Library, a campus branch library that houses a number of specialized services and collections including UNT’s Government Information Connection, the Funding Information Network, physical map collections, and GIS services.
Katherine Strickland is the University of Texas at Austin, UT Libraries' Maps Coordinator. In this position, I am responsible for all aspects of collection development, liaison, public, and digital scholarship services related to maps. I have worked for the UT Libraries for over 20 years, and I began working in the PCL Map Collection in 2009. I did not have a geography or GIS background before working with the Map Collection. I first managed the PCL Map Room, cataloged cartographic materials, and learned GIS to help UT patrons before the UT Libraries hired GIS experts. I have created numerous maps published in books and articles, as well as a basemap for an exhibition in the Bob Bullock Story of Texas Museum!
