MapHist, the Map History Discussion List, is an e-mail discussion group whose primary focus
is historical maps, atlases, globes and other cartographic documents. The
list is open to all persons interested in the history of cartography
and discussion is encouraged on all aspects of this broad subject.
The primary purpose of MapHist is to encourage individuals to communicate
current research; evaluate methods and tools of analysis; announce important
acquisitions and news; announce position vacancies; announce new publications;
investigate library holdings; and to share information between conferences
and the appearance of relevant journals.
