Map Room Weekly News Update: Send Your Submissions
I am excited to announce a new project, “Map Room Weekly News Update,” on permanent display on the wall outside of the Map Room in the basement of Olin Library. The Map Room Weekly News Update presents news items from around the world that may not have received front-page coverage by the mainstream newspapers, TV, radio, and online news services. Our goal is to link visually the content of the news items with the geographic locations where they have happened.
We also want to engage the CUL and the broader Cornell community in publicizing important world events. We invite you to contribute short news pieces on political, ecological, scientific, or cultural topics, no larger than 100 words in length, with a complete citation of the news source. We reserve the right to edit the language of the submitted materials.
Please send your submissions no later than 9am on the Monday of the week the news item will be displayed, as MS Word attachments in an e-mail to email@example.com.
