Innovative Education students create Tolkien Middle-Earth-style UK map

Two Education students created a Tolkien Middle-Earth-style map of UK after they were challenged to find a use for a large bulletin board found in the Education Library. Senior Library Technician Emily Bayma-Santos asked students Madeline Tiemeyer and Hannah Meredith to come up with something to put on the eighteen-foot section that had been hidden behind unused shelving.

Madeline, a secondary English education senior, and Hannah, an early elementary education junior, suggested a map of Tolkien’s Middle-Earth that fit with the Education Library’s juvenile/young adult literature collection. 

According to Bayma-Santos, Scott Swift in Young Library’s mailroom suggested it be a map of UK. “Hannah did some of the planning and prep work but the art itself is solely Madeline’s, “ says Bayma-Santos. “It’s done in black sharpie and chalk on butcher paper and took her around eight hours.”
