After 27 years (1986-2013) NEMO has closed up the hatches and its members have sailed away to various quarters of the globe. This page serves as a partial record of activities and resources. Though it is not being updated (with small exceptions), access to the NEMO Newsletter and meeting announcements provide a brief history of a group that has many memories and accomplishments.

Former members are in many parts of the United States, Canada, and overseas. Most continue their roles as map librarians, geographers, cartographers, and map enthusiasts. This page continues to reflect this association and its mission.


The NEMO Newsletter was published quarterly and contained news and activities of NEMO members, as well as useful information on resources, reviews, and events in the world of map making, map librarianship, and geography. View issues here.
