“Mapping Movement” kicks off –

We started on Monday afternoon, getting a welcome and introduction to this NEH funded project. The primary investigator, Jim Akerman, chronologically walked us through a selection of the rare and beautiful maps in the Newberry Library collection in the reading room.

We have a stellar group of map and cartographic scholars we are working with on this project. We’ll spend the day in the conference room working through the goals, individual work items, and schedules with this group of experts.
