......................................

Minutes of the Map Curators' Group Business Meeting held on Thursday 12th
September 2002.

1. Apologies for absence were accepted by the convenor.

2. April Carlucci was very much in favour of the creation of a UK "Map
Librarians' Toolbox" similar to the one already in existence created by the
Western Association of Map Libraries. This could gather into one place
useful information such as links to the directory of UK map collections, or
info on where to buy conservation equipment. Having spoken in favour of
this she was, naturally, volunteered to do it.

3. Training. Ann Sutherland volunteered Martin Norgate, John Moore, April
Carlucci, Nick Millea and Francis Herbert to produce a report on the
subject by the end of October. David Watt pointed out that the Swedes have
a map curation group (possibly attached to LIBER) and we could learn from
them.

4. Reports. Francis Herbert gave an account of the recent IFLA meeting.
Nick Millea gave an account of the LIBER meeting, where 40 to 50 delegates
from 17 countries gathered and most of the committee resigned.

5. Digital data.
Nobody really had much to say about this. Peter Barber introduced Joe Nunn,
the new Curator of Digital Mapping at the British Library.
The new agreement between O.S. and the government regarding digital data
was discussed. Some map libraries had been approached by service providers,
but everyone was doubtful whether it was worth it for the money. It was
generally agreed that digital data will play an increasing important role
in map libraries in the future.

6. Cartographiti.
Linda Bailey is now assisting Tinho with Cartographiti.

7. lis-maps.
Clare Gordon has become joint list owner of lis-maps.

8. Theft update.
Following on from the subject of digital data, David Watt pointed out that
stealing digital data could be even easier than stealing a conventional map.
Peter Barber reported the thefts of miniature atlases from the British
Library and Cambridge University Library. Ann Sutherland pointed out that
making information more available about collections would inevitably make
theft more likely; Francis Herbert commented on the incidence of thieves
with "shopping lists", Peter said that items in the middle range of value
and rarity were in the greatest danger.

9.  Any other business.
Everyone thanked Tinho for organising the meeting.
Andrew Cook complained about the arrangement of the sessions at the
conference, especially the fact that the MCG sessions clashed with the
aerial photography session. Ann Sutherland offered to follow this up with
BCS.

The point was made that the MCG is the national group for map curators /
map librarians, and has some professional weight. The convenor was asked to
write to the British Library to raise the issue of putting the Maps
Catalogue on the web. In support of this, Nick Millea offered to try and
find the number of hits on the COPAC website for maps, and pointed out that
85 - 90 % of the hits on the Bodleian Library's website were on the maps
pages.

Pete Jones announced the second edition of the multilingual glossary of
cartographic terms, and the publication of a directory of cartographic
websites. The latter covers 38 countries (so far) and lists sources for
geographic information, including transport, terrain etc.
