Speaker: Joe Collier, Business Reference Librarian, Mount Prospect Public Library

Graceland Cemetery in Chicago is one of the oldest and most historic spots in the city. Unsatisfied with the meager map/resource I was given when I first explored it, I decided--as a reference librarian and local history enthusiast--to create my own.

Partnering with a friend and cartographer, we researched, designed and printed our own map of Graceland as an example of what a little enthusiasm and a set of kickass library DIY skills can produce.
