Micro-Grant Success

Colorado Historical Maps: Project Complete

The map collection hosted at the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library at CU Boulder is as impressive online as it is offline. The map library has focused their efforts on making their online library as vast and informational as their physical library - so in 2017, after hearing about the SIPA Micro-Grant, they decided to submit the project: Colorado Historical Maps.

A year after receiving the Micro-Grant Funds (a 2016 grant cycle recipient), the virtual maps library launched newly scanned historical maps of Colorado, created/published by Louis Nell. You can see the maps here.

Naomi Heiser, the Map Library Cataloguing Manager was able to speak to the effectiveness of the grant, "The grant allowed us to put up some of our most unique historical maps. On top of that, one of the best parts about the grant process was attending the User Conference and being a part of the community. Listening to the other project ideas and presentations was also valuable and gives us ideas for future grant projects.”

Ultimately the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library at CU Boulder is trying to do exactly what SIPA aims to do - put more information online in a useable and intuitive way.
