Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives Annual Meeting

The CARTO 2012 conference and pre-conference workshops will be held from June 12 to 15, 2012, at the Ted Rogers School of Management on the Ryerson University campus and the University of Toronto Map and Data Library respectively. See

The main theme for CARTO 2012 is:

A Journey Through a Changing Landscape.

We live and work in a dynamic environment that forces us to adapt rapidly and plan strategically for the future. How can our past help us prepare for the future? What projects and collaborations have helped us stay relevant?  How can we communicate our value to the academic community and society at large?

Our program will be based on the following sub-themes:

  • Map and GIS librarianship within academic librarianship
  • Historical maps and GIS
  • Partnerships, collaborations and networking
  • Professional development and continuing education
  • Archiving, preservation and digitization
  • Spatial information literacy and instruction
  • Metadata and cataloguing
  • Acquisition of digital and paper material
  • Open source and open data
  • Emerging technologies
