I can’t resist a map collection! Today’s site brings you the maps that have digitized at Penn State University Libraries.
When you arrive at the site, you’ll find 147 gallery pages of maps that have been digitized for your viewing pleasure. (Okay so really it’s for research purposes, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t enjoy them.)
On the left side of the page, you’ll facets that allow you to narrow the results down by Title, Subject, Date of Publication, and Date Coverage.
Once you’ve clicked on a map, it will load on its own page where you can see it full size. If you look at the bottom center of the map area, you’ll see a grey button that you can click and drag to pull the visual area down so you can see the whole map at once.
Beneath the map, you’ll find information about it including Title, Language, Coordinates, and Notes.
This is a really cool map collection! Go check it out for yourself today!
