WISER coming up: maps and manuscripts

Next week Bodleian Libraries will be running WISER workshops on using maps and mapping to present spatial data and on the Bodleian's manuscript collections:

WISER: Maps and Mapping (Wednesday 25 May 1.45 - 3.15pm) - Many areas of research use spatial data and digital mapping is an ideal way to present it.  This presentation will cover both web based resources (online map collections etc) and the digital mapping facilities available in the Bodleian. The course will include a short demonstration of MapInfo and a brief introduction to using it.
Presenter: Debbie Hall.  Book your place online at

WISER: Manuscripts (Wednesday 25 May 3.30 - 5.00pm) - This session will give an introductory overview of the rich heritage collections preserved in the Bodleian. This session will also help readers to locate relevant material and describe the procedures for access and getting assistance.
Presenters: Mike Webb.  Book your place online at

Not a current member of Oxford University? - If you are not a current member of Oxford university, you can book your places by emailing quoting your Bodleian Libraries card number.
