Scope

The Digital Maps virtual collection contains pointers to images that have been created of objects from the Harvard Map Collection holdings. While the Map Collection owns maps from around the world, only a representative sample of the collection have actually been imaged. Because of copyright issues, only maps that are out of copyright are included here (currently before 1923 or so).

To find out the full extent of Map Collection Holdings, please visit the Collection in person to review the card catalog and talk to a reference librarian.

Maps from many geographic and thematic classifications are available. For a browsable list of catagories, please see Harvard Map Collection Digital Maps in HOLLIS. Some highlights include:

  • Boston
  • Cambridge, Massachusetts
  • Other Massachusetts towns
  • New England
  • London
  • China
  • Pictorial Maps by Ernest Dudley Chase
  • Fire Insurance and Real Property Atlases
  • Treasures of the Harvard Map Collection
  • Maps of the Revolutionary War
