Maps at the Denver Public Library

The Denver Post takes a look at the map holdings of the Denver Public Library, which — in no small part due to the library’s former status as a federal repository — are apparently substantial. “If you’re feeling lost, head to the fifth floor of the downtown branch. It is home to a collection of about 18,000 maps: many historic, some aesthetically gorgeous, and most available for perusal by the general public — no appointment necessary. This being the computer age, many of the maps are being digitized and archived online.” Via Geospatial News and MAPS-L.
