An exhibit of maps celebrating “150 Years of Cartography: Past, Present and Future” is currently on display in the Alumni Reading Room on the main floor of the library.

Curated by library staff, Sherri Sunstrum and Joel Rivard, the display is in conjunction with the 42nd Annual Conference of the Canadian Cartographic Association, held here at Carleton from May 31 – June 2. Anyone interested in maps or cartography is welcome to attend the conference – a gathering of practitioners, educators, researchers from public and private sectors and the community at large. Topics range from traditional topographic and thematic mapping to online viewers and applications such as Google Earth, as well as mobile apps on hand-held devices.
