The University Record, September 5, 2000

Friends of University Library were treated to a sampling of some of the Map Library’s 310,000 holdings at the July 25 program “Maps, Love Letters and More.” At left, Karl Longstreth, head, Map Library, and director, China Data Center, International Institute, points to some of the atlases, nautical charts and cadaster maps (showing land ownership) in the Library’s international collection. An 1809 pocket globe, shown below, by the English Dollond family of instrument makers also was among the items on display. Photos by Britt Halvorson
