Joint Professional Development Event August 18th: Learn About ATLMaps @ CURVE with MALA, SGA, and SLA-GA

The Society of Georgia Archivists, the Special Libraries Association Georgia Chapter, and the Metro-Atlanta Library Association invite you to a meetup at Georgia State University Library’s CURVE. The event will feature a presentation (on a 24′ interactive wall!) about the ATLMaps project by Joe Hurley, Data Services and GIS Librarian, and Dr. Brennan Collins, Associate Director of Writing Across the Curriculum and the Center for Instructional Effectiveness. Refreshments will follow, sponsored by Crawford Media Services.

The ATLmaps project combines archival maps, geospatial data visualization, and user contributed multimedia location pinpoints to promote investigation into any number of issues about Atlanta. This innovative online platform will allow users to layer an increasing number of interdisciplinary data to address the complex issues that cities pose. ATLMaps is a collaboration between Georgia State University and Emory University.

WHEN: Thursday, 8/18, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm

WHERE: GSU Library CURVE
