Dear all (apologies for cross posting)

The Map Curators' Group of the British Cartographic Society
is pleased to invite you to their 2016 Workshop.

This is being held at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh on 
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th September 2016.

Not only is Edinburgh a beautiful city to visit but the National Library 
will also be hosting a major map exhibition 'You are here!' 
http://www.nls.uk/exhibitions, which it would be shame to miss!

The theme of the Workshop is:

“Big is beautiful: managing large maps and large collections”

On Thursday there is a series of talks, followed by the Map Curators' 
Group AGM and an optional group meal.

On Friday you have a choice of visits (though book early since places 
are limited!)

The full programme and contact details can be found at 
http://www.cartography.org.uk/mcg-2016/ where a booking form can also be 
downloaded. (Note that cancellations made after 22nd August will attract 
a 25% cancellation fee and that  NO bookings will be accepted after 1st 

The workshop provides an ideal opportunity to meet people, exchange 
views and news and learn what is happening in the map curating world.

See you there!
