Stanford University to House David Rumsey Map Collection

Stanford University Library has started preparations to receive the David Rumsey Map Collection.  David Rumsey began gathering his map collection over 25 years ago and announced in 2009 that it would be donated to Stanford.  According to Rumsey, technology has risen to the forefront in the University’s plans for the collection and the map center. Computerized tools, such as video and touch-sensitive walls, will be available beside the physical maps. ArcGIS will also be incorporated.
