WAML Scanning Projects Clearinghouse

Over the past few years, it has become obvious that a number of different universities and public libraries have completed map digitization projects. Additional projects are being planned or are underway. This Clearinghouse is an effort to create a union list of digitization projects. Its goal is to increase our knowledge of and accessibility to scanned items and avoid duplication of efforts.
