Two recent announcements from the State of Arizona Research Library.
The State of Arizona Research Library has a new interactive tool that teachers, researchers, and explorers can enjoy! Created by one of the library’s interns, the Arizona Historic Place Names Story Map is designed to connect individuals to the rich history the state offers, whether for newcomers or for those who have spent a lifetime in Arizona.
Before building the map, [Lisa] Kallmes first created a new collection for the Arizona Memory Project: Arizona Historic Place Names. This collection is available available online. She drew on the information she collected from historic newspaper clippings, and did additional research using the millions of items in the State of Arizona Research Library collections.
The State of Arizona Research Library rolls out a new digital collection: Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Route Map and Land Grant Filing Maps. This is one of several new collections that will become available this year.
The Arizona State Railroad Museum Foundation, located in Williams, Arizona, recently uploaded 22 full-size, color land grant application maps of the historic Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Company on the Arizona Memory Project. The collection will be available indefinitely and can be viewed on any digital device.
