Impressive Collection Of Historic Maps
While posting the story about the firm combining historic and new maps through Geographic Information Systems technology, I came across an great new online resource of historic maps.
The Osher Map Library at the University of Southern Maine houses the map collections of Lawrence M. C. and Eleanor Houston Smith, Dr. Harold L. and Peggy L. Osher, and Dr. Peter M. Enggass as well as many other individual maps.
The Osher Map Library is located on the ground floor of the Albert Brenner Glickman Family Library on the Portland campus of the University of Southern Maine. If, like me, Maine is a long way from home but you still appreciate historic maps, the library has a number of its current and past exhibitions posted on its impressive website. I've bookmarked the site for more browsing.
