Serial Set Maps

A specialized, additional search module for Readex U.S. Congressional Serial Set, Serial Set Maps allows users to focus searches on the maps themselves - the geographic areas they depict, the subjects they represent, their titles, and the names associated with the maps either as cartographers, explorers, or in some other capacity. Serial Set Maps will eventually cover the full scope of the Readex U. S. Congressional Serial Set. Its current range of coverage is:

Map images, records, and indexing for maps published in Reports and Documents of the 42nd Congress, 3rd session through the 52nd Congress, 1st session.

Covering years: 1872 - 1892
Serial Set Volumes 1544 - 2890
As of November 2007: 10,463 Maps

The folks at Readex are not currently planning on integrating this module into their main Serial Set interface.
