Event description
During lockdown many of us have learnt new ways of working and begun new projects. Some of these will change the way we work going forward.

About this event

Join us on Google Meet to hear about some of these exciting developments and to network with people who look after map collections from across the cultural heritage sector and beyond. Map collections and their curators are often isolated and undervalued within their institution. Join in a workshop session about how we can better advocate for their preservation, protection and use.

Our schedule* includes:

Map Curators' Group business meeting

Advocating for our map collections – workshop and discussion

Stuart Ackland, Bodleian Library: What we did during the lockdown – how the Bodleian Map Department filled the time, dealt with enquiries and the benefits and disadvantages of working from home

Donna Sherman, University of Manchester Library: Responding to a library lockdown: new map room services and skills at the University of Manchester

David Bate, British Geological Survey: A brief history of geology and cartography at the British Geological Survey

Simon Harris, British Geological Survey: 'Locating in lockdown' – improving collections metadata at the British Geological Survey

James January-McCann, Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales: Collecting Welsh place names

Craig Statham, National Library of Scotland: From onsite to online: re-inventing National Library of Scotland Talks and Workshops in a pandemic
