• Map locations from a GPS receiver

You will learn about:

• Constructing and Sharing Maps (including with Google Earth)
• Mapping Named Data (including census data and street addresses)
• Mapping Coordinate Data (including using a GPS receiver)
• Mapping Image Data (including scanned maps and satellite data)
• Extracting Map Features (including geoprocessing and editing vector data)
• Analyzing Geographic Relationships (including geostatistics)

This course is in seven parts: January 7 – 11 and 14 – 15, each day from 9 a.m. – Noon.

Amherst x The Great Midwest Trivia Contest

Tony Bradburn believes that if you were to be on skiis, one lap around this lake would be a SERIOUS work out. Nearby this lake is a historical building within which resides a 10 foot sculpture of a historical Illinoisan politician. In the room with the single twin bed, there is a heart-shaped box on top of a dresser. What is in the box?

Over 50 years ago, Lawrence University’s radio station WLFM-AM started the Great Midwest Trivia Contest, a 50-hour research-based trivia event. If you enjoy answering complicated questions (like the one above) or completing action challenges such as “creating and performing the best love song in under 10 minutes,” sign up to express your interest in participating in the Great Midwest Trivia Contest! Participants compete in teams that will likely be defined by class year. Student Activities and Science Center Programs is teaming up to present this weekend-long event complete with food and fun for participants of the contest. The contest begins at 9 p.m. on Friday, January 25, 2019, and ends on Sunday, January 27, at midnight. (This is the weekend right before second-semester classes begin on January 28.) Contest headquarters will be held in the Living Room of the Science Center.

Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) Internship/Fellowship Info Session

The Robert Frederick Smith Fund for the Digitization and Curation of African American History was established to advance the digital curation, community outreach and internship initiatives at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

As part of the Smith Fund Internship and Fellowship Program, the Museum will select and provide funding for interns who will be located onsite with the Museum and offsite at select African American museums, art galleries and museums of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), cultural institutions and historic sites, or other related institutions dedicated to the study and preservation of African American history and culture. All internship opportunities with this program will focus on work related to digital imaging, media preservation, digital preservation of personal and community objects, digital content management, collections information management, recording and preserving oral histories or digital filmmaking.

Internships will provide guided learning experiences consisting of hands-on training, mentoring, attendance at educational events and cultivation of contacts for the next generation of researchers, scholars, curators, and other museum, library, preservation and heritage professionals – individuals who will assume the mantle of identifying, documenting, curating and digitizing treasured artifacts that reflect African American history and culture.

Attend this information session -- a virtual presentation by the Museum's staff hosted by Loeb Center advisors -- to learn more about the internship program and how to successfully apply before the February 15 deadline.
