Mapping the Southwest

The cataloging and digitization of 5,000 historic maps from the collections of the University of Texas at Arlington for online access through the University of North Texas's Portal to Texas History.

The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries and its partner, the University of Texas at Arlington's (UTA) Special Collections, plan to digitize and make available online 5,000 historically significant rare maps. Online access to these maps will be provided through UNT's Portal to Texas History, a collaborative digital gateway to historical materials from over one hundred partners. If this proposal is funded, the subsequent map collections will comprise the third largest collection of online maps in existence. Pulling on the strengths between us, the partnership understands the challenges involved in an undertaking of this scope, and possesses the knowledge and management skills to achieve success, and provide unprecedented access to one of the nation's premier cartographic collections.
