The adventure begins – or rather I should say, continues.
After 6 years of re-building, both the physical re-building of the basement and the map and aerial photograph collections, the Government Documents & Maps (MAGIS) department has moved back into the basement. We are all together as one department again (for me, its really the first time). We have been open for business for the last month or so, calling it a soft opening and had the donors come in on Wednesday (August 18) to look at how their contributions were put to good use.
Manoa MAGIS, which encompasses Maps, Aerials and Geographic Information Systems has had a temporary lab for a year and a half. We now have a brand new lab complete with 8 workstations and loads of GIS and other software. We plan to open in the second week of Fall 2010 and will be open Mondays – Thursdays between 1 and 5. More on the lab, software and software support is here:
Details of an open house are forthcoming in a new post.
