Newport, Oregon, USA
Sarah P’s comments: For anyone interested in possible work or, more likely, volunteer opportunities for Marine Science Libraries here is an organization with an impressive international connections list. Visit their homepage and scroll down to see a map of all their members locations. They offer resource sharing and have an annual conference located in a different country every year.
The International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) is an association of individuals and organizations interested in library and information science, especially as these are applied to the recording, retrieval and dissemination of knowledge and information in all aspects of aquatic and marine sciences and their allied disciplines. The association provides a forum for exchange and exploration of ideas and issues of mutual concern.
