We warmly welcome Assistant Professor Sarah H. Theimer as our new Cataloging and Metadata Librarian. Prior to joining us, she was Principal Cataloger and Metadata Librarian at Syracuse University, where she worked for 17 years.

After getting her Master of Library Studies from the University of Maryland at College Park, Sarah worked in the Washington, DC area for several years at Advanced Sciences, Inc. and the Brookings Institution. She then moved to Boise, ID, to work at the Library and Archives Division of the Idaho State Historical Society, first as Senior Librarian, then as Administrator.

Sarah’s publications include “All Metadata Politics is Local: Developing Meaningful Quality Standards,” a chapter in New Directions in Information Organization (2013), and “What Language Death and Language Planning Tell Us About MARC and RDA,” which appeared in the Journal of Library Metadata (2012).

Library Welcomes Meg Eastwood

Posted December 11, 2015

We warmly welcome Assistant Professor Meg Eastwood as our new Life Sciences & Agriculture Librarian. Prior to joining us, she was an Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences Librarian at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

Between getting a B.A. in Biology from Grinnell College in 2005 and an M.S. in Information Studies from The University of Texas at Austin in 2012, Meg spent several years working as a biology research assistant. She worked on projects in Honduras, on Mt Lemmon in Arizona, on the coast of northern California, and more. One of her favorite jobs was here in the Seacoast NH area, at UNH’s own Shoals Marine Lab.

Meg’s academic interests include finding efficient ways to share and archive scientific data – one big challenge here is including enough metadata to allow future researchers to understand how the data were collected.

She is looking forward to providing research and instruction help to the students and faculty in Life Sciences & Agriculture.

Meg can be reached by phone (603) 862-1532 or email.
