Tennessee digitizing original historical maps for public

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Officials say the Tennessee State Library and Archives is digitizing original historical maps and making them available to a wider public.

On Jan. 27, the State Library and Archives and the Nashville Public Library will host a presentation on the collection, "Historic Maps of Tennessee and Beyond: Digital Maps at the Tennessee State Library and Archives." Assistant State Archivist Wayne Moore will lead the discussion, which is free and open to the public.

An initial collection of more than 100 maps has just been released, and they are being made available in the Tennessee Virtual Archive. The State Library and Archives will continue adding its maps to this digital online collection.
