Join us for a guest lecture from G. Salim Mohammed, of Stanford's Rumsey Map Center.

G. Salim Mohammed is the head and curator of Stanford University’s new David Rumsey Map Center, one of the first physical libraries expressly dedicated to historical cartography research and teaching. Mohammed will discuss this extraordinary collection’s origins, history, and development into a major digital portal, as well as how they are currently positioning themselves to assist faculty, students, and staff. He will share his experiences from the center’s first four months in operation.
