Borchert Map Library at the University of Minnesota: Excellence Online and Off

In Minnesota we have many libraries with excellent map collections. Today, many of these are digitizing maps so we can view some from our homes. One such library is the John R. Borchert Map Library in Wilson Library at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

I fondly remember touring the map library a few times in past years. A collection that really intrigued me was the aerial maps of Minnesota. Now I am able to view them online.

The map, atlas, and gazetteer collection covers the world. One exciting map enabled me to pinpoint an ancestral farm location in Sweden.

Spend some time on the map library website and learn more about the exciting material that awaits your searches.
