This week Alasdair Macleod, Head of Resources and Enterprises, and Sarah Evans, Research and Collections Engagement Manager at the Society, are taking part in a webinar about the Society’s map collection. Organised by the National University of Singapore, this is the fourth in a series on ‘Unlocking Historical Maps of Southeast Asia’, and will explore how we share the collection with our Fellows, members and the public.
The Society’s map collection makes up around half of the Collections’ two million items. In their talk, Alasdair and Sarah will discuss the ways in which we work with a range of audiences to showcase these materials and encourage engagement with them.
In light of the recent digitisation of a large proportion of pre-1945 items in the Collections, including substantial parts of the map collection, they will also consider the opportunities and challenges that arise from sharing such materials through new digital platforms.
The webinar is this Wednesday, 14 October at 12.00 noon, and will feature Alasdair and Sarah alongside Tan Huism, the Director of the National Library of Singapore. Register now.
Geographers, including Chartered Geographers and Fellows of the Society, will be featured in keynote presentations, workshops and panels at Carto’s international Spatial Data Science Conference next week.

In January, we asked our Fellows and members about how they engage with the Society: how they keep up to date with our activities, which member benefits they use, and if they had suggestions for how we could improve their membership experience.
Congratulations to our Fellows who were awarded Chartered Geographer status by our Council in September.
