    • Short video of scanning process.
    • Show you maps and images to explain what we are doing and why.
    • Collect any feedback you have.
  • 3. Map Digitization @ UCLA
    • Gain knowledge and expertise for sustainable scanning of maps (library-driven AND user-driven)
    • Digitize as many maps as possible for a variety of uses:
      • Research
      • Access
      • Curated projects
      • Ad hoc user-requests
      • Preservation
  • 4.
    • Overview of UCLA Map Collection
    • Approximately 1 million print maps, worldwide coverage, historical and contemporary
