Join us as we celebrate the Great Lakes as part of the LSA's Great Lakes Theme Semester. This third Thursday will feature the Clark Library's vast collection of maps on the Great Lakes. Using historic maps, follow in the footsteps of Native Americans and fur traders and witness the War of 1812 in the Great Lakes. Take a spin through the road maps of the Great Lakes area, and explore the changing tourism of the area through pictorial maps. Finally, explore the lakes themselves and the secrets they hold, from shipwrecks to invasive species.
