Summer Interns Help Organize USGS Library and Map Collections in St. Petersburg, Florida
by Ellen Raabe and Lindsay Bartz
Lindsay Bartz and Sandra Ionescu assisted this summer at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. Bartz and Ionescu made substantial progress in organizing, cataloging, and archiving library, map, and outreach resources. Their efforts will make reference materials more readily available to scientists and office outreach staff. Office sponsors, Ellen Raabe, Physical Scientist, and Theresa Burress, Librarian, appreciate the volume of work accomplished. The summer interns also participated in lunchtime yoga, as interviewees for the Oceanography Camp for Girls, and in other outreach activities.
Ionescu is an undergraduate biology major at the University of Florida; she plans on earning a Ph.D. and conducting research in botany or genetics in a university setting.
Bartz is a senior at Virginia Tech and will graduate with a degree in geology; she hopes to continue with graduate studies after gaining real-world experience with technologies available to geoscientists. Eventually, Bartz hopes to work in a research-based institute studying plate tectonics. She will apply her observations of standard map resources to a geographic-information-system (GIS) course this fall.
