Map Curators’ Group (MCG)

This group is for anyone interested in using and sharing maps. Our members include librarians, archivists, curators, map historians and map collectors. Bound together by a shared interest in curating, maintaining and sharing our map collections, we welcome new members and new ideas.


Themed annual workshops offer the opportunity to share expertise and learn from each other, and are often accompanied by visits to map collections. We also run specialist training events to encourage and support newcomers to the map community. We also maintain the popular Directory of UK Map Collections and the Map Curators’ Toolbox, an online source of information for map curators, librarians and archivists.

The newsletter Cartographiti is published each year and includes papers from our workshops and relevant updates and news.

The Map Curators' Group is a member of BRICMICS.
