Brown University cataloguing its repository of rare maps

The AP Wire has one on a Brown University collection of more than 1,000 rare maps that librarians are in the process of cataloging online in an effort to move into the digital age.

Officials say the push to catalog the artifacts -- some brittle with age, and many dating back 100 years or more -- will make them more accessible to the public and help those interested in urban studies, genealogy and other research areas.
