Senior Career Instructor of Spanish Heather Quarles and Latin American Studies Librarian Bronwen Maxson developed a UO campus map in Spanish

Senior Career Instructor of Spanish Heather Quarles and Latin American Studies Librarian Bronwen Maxson developed a UO campus map in Spanish in Spring 2020 as part of a term long collaborative exercise with two Spanish 228 classes. The SPAN 228 students translated the initial set of 519 labels that we received from the Campus Mapping & GIS office.

Quarles and Maxson also reviewed and updated an additional 262 terms following the SPAN 228 student-developed translation guide. They hope to have students review their work during a future course.
