Unearthing Treasure: Finding Maps You Can't Live Without

Do you love maps? Are you curious about how you could use maps as sources for a class project or in your research? This workshop is for you! Join us to learn search strategies for discovering maps in the Library catalog and get hands-on experience unearthing treasures from the physical map collections in the Earth Sciences & Map Library!


Location: Earth Sciences & Map Library (50 McCone Hall)

This workshop is being put on as part of the lead up to the Map Mashup, a two-day map-making extravaganza taking place on April 19 & 20. Anyone is welcome to join for this workshop, even if you do not plan on participating in the Map Mashup.

The UC Berkeley Earth Sciences & Map Library invites students and others to use maps from our collection as the basis for a new map that they create. Over the course of two days we're hosting a series of map-related workshops and open work hours for people to work on their maps, either individually or in groups. The map mashups can be created on a computer or using physical materials. We'll publish digital versions of the final map mashups online!

Hosted by the Earth Sciences & Map Librarystudio.geo, & BUGs.
