Whither the map collection: keeping paper maps relevant in a digital age

headshot of a man wearing glasses and a red shirt
As digital mapping continues to prevail, library staff become less connected to the physical collections they once managed and these collections are repeated targets for dramatic weeding projects, meant to liberate highly sought after space. While people may love paper maps, many librarians and library administrators ask, “If digital mapping is the future, why keep the print maps? What purpose does it serve to keep them?”
