Never Too Many Digitized Maps!


Never Too Many Digitized Maps!

As much as we love city directories (yesterday’s blog post), we really really love maps.  Part of that is that city directories are a more recent type of publication where maps have been created throughout time.

The Library of Congress understands our obsession with maps so much that there is currently an exhibition, Mapping a Growing Nation From Independence to Statehood which includes an online exhibition component.


If this wasn’t sufficient to wet our appetite for maps, the current edition of the LOC Magazine (Vol 5 No 5 Sept-Oct 2016) is all about maps! Articles include Mapping the New World, Mapping the Imaginary, and Making of the Modern Map. As always, it’s a visually stunning and extremely informative edition.

Best of all, you can access the online exhibition and the LOC Magazine for FREE.



Where else might we find online collections or materials about maps?



Editor’s Note: Past Upfront with NGS blog posts on maps can be found here.
