Posted on Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Join us for Research Conversations with Gloria Booth-Morrison and Sarah Simpkin on the 22nd of March 2017 12:00-13:30, MHN 509:

Gloria Booth-Morrison: “Biology Information Literacy Initiatives at the Research Group Level” 

How effective is offering information literacy outreach at the research group level? 

 Sarah Simpkin: “Putting maps on the map: digitizing and sharing Ontario’s historic topographic maps”  

In 2014, the OCUL Geo community initiated a 2.5 year project to digitize over 1100 historic topographic maps covering the province of Ontario. In this presentation, I’ll discuss how the project was collaboratively managed, as well as our digitization, preservation, and access plans.
