Description

The University of Texas Libraries is launching a series of events to highlight the extensive cartographic materials held in the university’s various collections.

“You Are Here” will take place four times annually and will feature items from cartography collections across campus.

The first installment of the series will focus on maps of Austin, all selected from the PCL Map Collection, the Alexander Architectural Archive, and the Walter Geology Library. Everyone is welcome to drop by and peruse over a 100 years worth of Austin cartographic representations, including a digital display of how UT campus has grown. Take the opportunity to browse the largest map collection on campus, ask questions of map specialists, and have some pizza while it lasts on your lunch break!
