  • Speaker: Emily C. Wild; Chemistry, Geosciences and Environmental Studies Librarian; Princeton University
  • Learning outcomes: Princeton University Library’s chemistry and geosciences collections support library users interested in environmental research from the Department of Chemistry, Department of Geosciences, and the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI). This session will provide an overview of print and digital resources available for ecosystem health, geohealth, and radioactive wastes associated with uranium ore, yellowcake, and plutonium, especially for land areas near indigenous communities and urban sprawl. Prior to joining the Princeton University Library in 2018, Emily C. Wild worked for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for about 23 years as a hydrologist and librarian (physical scientist). From 2008 to 2018, Emily was a librarian for the USGS Energy Resources Program and USGS Mineral Resources Program in Denver, Colorado, where she helped uranium research chemists and geologists in the USGS, international governments, and mining companies worldwide find and use uranium mineral research publications and provided library instruction sessions on the environmental aspects uranium ore within areas of no mining, uranium mining (including in situ), and nuclear byproducts from nuclear reactors in the United States and worldwide.
