New York Public Library Map Room, 3/14/17

Preparing a little for Tuesday’s field trip, I found these overviews to New York Public Library Map division and NYC Maps. Spend a little time taking a look at these: they will make Tuesday’s class more meaningful.

You can see from the overview to the library’s map collection that they have many useful resources, both in print and online, that you can use for your research. They also have software tools onsite if you eventually want to play around with comparing maps or incorporating quantitative data with maps.

I am waiting to hear back from Artis, the librarian who will do our workshop, about details related to coat check and other restrictions like pens. I will post a map and other details when I know more.

Please make more of an effort to be on time this Tuesday–we want to start all our archives visits no later than 10:45.

  1. The address is 476 5th Ave. in Manhattan between 42nd and 41st Street. We meet in the lobby.

    No pens–please bring a pencil. Otherwise, we can leave our bags and coats in Room 216 where we’re having the workshop.

    Waiting to hear more about the snow day that is likely.
