Created through a novel partnership between The European Library and libraries like the National Library of Portugal and the National Library of Italy, DIGIMAP brings together thousands of historically important maps. On the DIGIMAP homepage, visitors can get things started by clicking on a selection within the “From Our Collections…” area. This area features a rotating selection of their maps which cover the past seven centuries and extend to all corners of Europe. Visitor can also use the drop-down menu in the right-hand corner to view the site in a number of languages, including German, Dutch, Estonian, and French. Moving on, visitors can browse this collection by author, date, place, or contributing institution. Finally, the site is rounded out by a “News” area which provides press releases and other information on the DIGIMAP project.
