IMCoS Weekend in Oxford – September 2019

5/6/7 September 2019

At the beginning of September we will be holding a number of events in Oxford.  On Friday 6th the main two events will be a visit to the exhibition “Talking Maps” at the Western Library (part of the Bodleian Library), where we will be shown round by the exhibition’s curator Nick Millea, Map Librarian, and following this we will be holding the annual Collectors’ Meeting at Wadham College.  We plan to arrange a group dinner for one evening, a visit to another map collection in Oxford and time to browse, and maybe buy, at the map shop Sanders of Oxford.

Arrival in Oxford is likely to be on the evening of Thursday 5th for a 10 am start on Friday.  You will need to arrange your own accommodation either in a hotel or one of the Oxford Colleges.  There should be plenty of opportunities to stay in a college, if you wish, since it is the university’s vacation time.  In additon to Wadham College there are plenty of other colleges  within 5-10 minutes walk of Library.   Just look under the Conference section of their web sites to see what they offer.

More information will be made available in the New Year.  In the meantime if you could be interested please save the dates!
