Description

Many libraries have digital map collections, but what about mapping the library? Creating interactive digital maps helps us locate resources and offers additional points of entry to library information. We will demonstrate opensource solutions for creating web maps, and show what we have learned in the process of creating two digital webbased maps: (1) an historical campus mapcombining historical photos of the campus with an interactive timeline; (2) a map of the library's collections.
