DNR Hires Full-Time Librarian For Information Resources Center/Carter Library
ANNAPOLIS DNR is pleased to announce that Ann Wheeler recently joined the DNR staff as full-time librarian of the Information Resource Center/Carter Library. Ann has a library degree from Drexel University and experience as a Social Sciences and Special Projects Librarian at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.
I joined DNR because I wanted to be part of its mission to preserve and protect Maryland's natural resources, said Ms. Wheeler. As DNR's librarian, I have the unique opportunity to support the DNR staff and researchers who are improving Maryland's environment every day. Also, by preserving the documents produced at DNR I can help ensure that the work we do today will be available for generations to come.
Before pursuing a career in library sciences, she worked as a consultant to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Biomass Office and as a researcher for a foreign energy company. Ann relocated to Annapolis from Pennsylvania a few months ago with her husband, a librarian at the U.S. Naval Academy.
