New York Public Library Map Room. We visit this collection after an in-class introduction to how to use maps for research and how to interpret maps. The librarians provide a lecture on how to use maps, both analog and digital, to understand how a neighborhood has changed. They can pull maps for a specific neighborhood that students can directly handle. If desired, the librarians can teach students by appointment how to use the NYPL's Map Warper to overlay maps of different historic periods for the same location.
