Map Scanning Registry

The ALA MAGIRT Map Scanning Registry and the Western Association of Map Libraries (WAML) Scanning Project Clearinghouse have recently been combined together. All records from both are now available in the ALA MAGIRT Map Scanning Registry.

Goals of the Registry

  • Find out what scanning is being planned, in process, or complete for a particular geographic area
  • Head off any duplication of effort
  • Provide a resource to use for finding a particular digital image
  • Provide a resource for reviewing the various technical parameters used in different projects
