The Osher Map Library offers many educational services for the K-12 and university communities.
OML staff have created, over the years, many educational resources that use early maps to address a variety of historical and other subjects. At the same time, OML conducts classes onsite for K-12 groups, including home school groups. OML staff are also available to travel to classrooms.
Additionally, OML staff have developed OsherMaps.org/MapPlay, a website geared for students grades 3 through 8.
The OML "faculty scholar" is a member of the USM faculty; his own courses on maps and history all meet in OML. The faculty scholar also conducts guest classes for any USM course for which maps are relevant, and can help other faculty integrate maps into their own pedagogy. Finally, the faculty scholar supervises USM and other students who seek an intern experience working with early maps.
