The David Rumsey Map Center enables and promotes interdisciplinary scholarship through the use of cartographic information in all forms—from paper to digital.  The Center provides access to original historical cartographic material in multiple ways, presents exhibits, makes innovative use of digital displays, provides interactive tools, and supports GIS applications. Centrally located on the fourth floor of the Bing Wing of the Green Library, the Center serves in the morning as a mediated space for faculty, researchers, and students by way of workshops, support for classes and one-on-one consultations with faculty and students that involve cartographic material. In the afternoons, the Center welcomes all students, faculty and staff as well as members of general public to view the Center’s materials. Note that materials must be paged in advance.
