Early Maps Online: Progress in Digitizing and Cataloging the Boswell Collection



The Pollak Library at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) houses the Roy V. Boswell Collection for the History of Cartography. The Collection consists of 1516 maps from the 14th through the 19th century. In a cooperative effort, the Library and the community support group, the Patrons of the Library, are currently working to catalog the maps and make digital images available online. The links below are samples of images from the portion of the Collection that has been digitized since the project's inception in January, 2005. The projected completion date for the project is end of 2010.
