Re: Arranging and storing a map collection?


We just made a list of maps and assigned a number to each one. The list is in an Excel spreadsheet so it can be sorted by date or by other columns. I would suggest you do something like that rather than trying to come up with an item number that would reflect all the information you’re trying to capture.

Most of our maps were also entered into our online catalogue so they can be discovered that way, but we tend to use the list more often.
