The Map Curators' Group (MCG) is for librarians, curators, archivists, map historians and map collectors - anyone interested or involved in looking after map collections. A newsletter, Cartographiti, is issued up to 3 times a year; an annual workshop and occasional training days are also arranged.
If you are a member of the British Cartographic Society you can ask to also be a member of MCG. However, you do not need to be a member of the British Cartographic Society to join the group and you do not need to be a member of MCG to take part in activities. If you wish, you can become a member of MCG by subscribing to our newsletter Cartographiti.
