Mapping Manchester for Researchers - 4 December 2018

With the support of the John Rylands Research Institute, Donna Sherman, Special Collections Librarian (Maps) has organised a one day workshop about how maps from the Library’s collections can be used in research.

She and her colleagues will be focusing upon maps of Manchester but the themes will include using maps as primary sources, connecting researchers to wider intellectual networks, using new technologies to facilitate spatial understanding, and improving access to physical collections.

This workshop will be of interest to human geographers, those looking to use mapping in digital humanities, research groups for urban development and planning, and those looking for GIS research projects. If you wish to attend, please sign up via the Eventbrite link. Numbers are limited to 25.</>
