Dating as early as 1769, these underused archival records document the survey, settlement, and sustainable use of Crown Lands. Among many other things, the CLSR collection documents Canada’s Indigenous history and culture such as the distribution of language groups, treaty rights, the location of Residential Schools and Indian reserves, and Indigenous land use and occupation. Through these, we can see the history of Indian reserves, National Parks, military bases, railway development, the fur trade, and the Arctic. As we will see, the records also help tell the story of the significant Indigenous contribution to the Klondike Gold Rush.</em></p> Roddy McFall, Mr. ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/233 Mon, 23 Jul 2018 00:00:00 -0400 Preparing a two day GIS workshop for Arts and Humanities researchers http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/231 <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In winter 2018, we were approached to lead a two day (12 hour) workshop for arts and humanities researchers as part of the </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East </span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">(DHSITE) conference hosted by the University of Ottawa. The workshop,</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Introduction to Mapping and Spatial Methods for the Humanities</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, built upon a shorter offering presented by Sarah last year. It had a Historical GIS (HGIS) twist and was open in terms of datasets, software, and instructional materials.</span></p> Joel Rivard, Sarah Simpkin ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/231 Mon, 23 Jul 2018 00:00:00 -0400 News related to the Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/235 Eva Dodsworth ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/235 Wed, 25 Jul 2018 00:00:00 -0400 Books Reviewed by: Kelly Schultz, Martin Chandler, Andrew Nicholson, Erika Reinhardt, Larry Laliberté http://openjournals.uwaterloo.ca/index.php/acmla/article/view/232 <p>Clemmer, Gina. <strong><em>The GIS 20 Essential Skills, third edition.</em></strong> Redlands, California: Esri Press, 2017. 182p. $49.99 US.
