Jennifer Marvin
University of Guelph Library

Launched this spring, Scholars GeoPortal (http://geo.scholarsportal.info), the newest service of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) allows students, staff, and faculty at Ontario universities to discover, manipulate, and download a wide range of geospatial datasets. The result of a collaborative project involving participants from libraries across the province, the GeoPortal presents consortially licensed data collections to the academic community using exiting new tools that offer state-of-the-art web mapping features. Rich in data and highly visually engaging, the Scholars GeoPortal is the perfect material for a pecha kucha session! We'll provide a whirlwind tour of the portal itself, while touching on lessons learned while undertaking this complex project.
