Reference: Wisconsin Historical Society Makes More Than 3,000 Rare Maps Available Online
Wisconsin Historical Society officials say they now have more than 3,000 digital versions of rare maps and atlases online.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison contributed staff to catalog several hundred of them, but at the time of the first donation thousands of maps could only be found through an antiquated card catalog. Hundreds more lay in random piles.
