The Clark Library welcomes visits from academic and community groups, and also offers in-course instruction as well as workshops open the community.
Visits can focus on particular collections within the Clark Library. For example, a visit to the Map Collection usually includes a general introduction to Cartography and common map types, as well as an introduction to our collection and some of our collection highlights.
We can accommodate class visits of up to 30 students, from kindergarten through graduate level. Visits usually run anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half in length. We aim to support classroom curriculum and can work with instructors to develop a theme for the visit.
To schedule a visit, please contact us.
We offer workshops on a number of topics, including GIS and data visualization.
