The Leventhal Center has an extraordinary collection of urban atlases dating from the late 19th to early 20th centuries, one of the most important sets of documents for depicting how our city and region have changed over time. Our Atlascope tool transforms 101 of these atlases into a web interface suitable for browsing on a computer or mobile device, making it easy to compare properties, buildings and owners to tell stories about places over time. With new features to empower storytelling, annotation, and discovery, as well as connections into other Massachusetts digital collections, Atlascope is a great tool to answer questions like:
During Atlascope Office Hours, LMEC Staff will be available to answer questions, provide a demonstration of Atlascope features, troubleshoot atlas-based research inquiries, and more.
Drop in anytime between 2:00PM – 4:00PM. Chromebooks will be provided.
