Katie is the Librarian for the MLML/MBARI Research Library. She manages the Library collections and services in support of research and teaching in the physical and biological marine sciences as well as ocean engineering and technology at Moss Landing Marine Labs and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). Katie teaches a 1-credit course on Library Research Methods in Marine Science at MLML. Her research interests are in open data and data citation practices (with an emphasis on geospatial data), author’s rights, and on the changing landscape of scholarly communication and the effects on library infrastructure and services.
Katie received her B.A. in American Studies from UC Santa Cruz and her Master’s in Library Science from San José State University. After working in the Map Room at UC Santa Cruz for a number of years she became the map librarian and head of an interdisciplinary, specialized library supporting research and teaching in the earth and environmental sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. She joined Moss Landing Marine Laboratories and MBARI in 2016 as the faculty librarian and head of the library.
Prospective MLML students: please note that as the librarian Katie does not accept marine science graduate students at MLML.
