Reading Lists: Computers, science & technology

These days all you need is a digital design, and then robots (like 3D printers) will make things for you!

During the 2014 Earth Science Week, October 17th is marked as “Geologic Map Day.” A geologic map is one which shows, visually, the layout of rocks, soil, and other geologic features. Does the library have any examples of geologic maps? You bet! This list gathers some of the most popular ones, with a special focus on Oregon. If you have any questions about maps at the library, just ask a librarian!
