The Map and Geography Round Table (MAGERT) is one of 15 round tables in the American Library Association. Formed in 1980, MAGERT--with over 380 members, the world's largest map library organization--provides a forum for people interested or involved in any aspect of map or geography librarianship. MAGERT members benefit from:
  • A forum for the exchange of ideas by persons working with or interested in map and geography collections or information.

  • Advocacy and education for increased availability, use and control of map and geography collections.

  • Annual meetings with informative programs and opportunities to meet professional colleagues; mid-winter working meetings providing opportunities for involvement on committees and task forces; and informal after-meeting gatherings offering fun and new friends.

  • Publications such as MAGERT's newsletter base line, the Occasional Paper series, and the Guide to U.S. Map Resources (2nd edition was published by ALA in 1990).
