New Digitized Map Resource for Onsite Researchers

If you visit the NS Archives in person, we're pleased to announce a new resource for map research. We've identified nearly 700 of our most popular oversized and fragile maps – 341 for Halifax City (1746-1978) and 351 for the rest of Nova Scotia (1669-1992) – digitized them, added the magnification feature, and made them available via the public work stations in the Third Floor Reading Rooms. We believe this will make your map research quicker, easier, and more rewarding!
