September’s Database of the Month: Digital Sanborn Maps.

September’s Database of the Month at the Watertown Free Public Library: Digital Sanborn Maps.

ProQuest Information and Learning’s Digital Sanborn Maps, 1867-1970 provides digital access to more than 660,000 large-scale maps of more than 12,000 American towns and cities. In electronic form, Sanborn Maps take on much improved value over the microfilm versions of the same maps, allowing for greater flexibility of use and improved viewing possibilities. Users have the ability to easily manipulate the maps, magnify and zoom in on specific sections, and layer maps from different years.

Come in to the library to check out the Digital Sanborn Maps!
