Please join us in welcoming an important new addition to the Washington Geological Survey–librarian Stephanie Earls! Stephanie will be replacing Lee Walkling, who is retiring in April 2013.

Stephanie has relocated back to the Pacific Northwest after three years as the Utah Department of Natural Resources librarian. She has a B.S. in geology from University of Utah, and a M.S. in library and information science from University of Washington. In addition, she worked as an environmental consultant for three years prior to graduate school. She is active in various professional organizations related to both geology and librarianship. In her free time, she loves rolling through the world self-propelled on two wheels, cooking, and dancing.

Her vision for the Washington Geology Library is to spread the word about the amazing resources available in the library and make them as accessible as possible by way of an updated library catalog and a shift toward more digital information available online. Please contact her with any questions via email (stephanie.earls@dnr.wa.gov) or phone (360-902-1473).
