ISHMap-List: new Map History email listserv

Back in the old days, questions or announcements related to any aspect of cartographic history were easily broadcast far and wide via the MapHist listserv.  A few years ago, MapHist migrated away from an email listserv to an on line forum. Although well designed, the forum has failed to maintain the passion and level of discussion that existed previously in MapHist’s listserv format. In an effort to recapture those qualities, the International Society for the History of the Map recently created the ISHMap-List, an email listserv open to anyone interested in cartographic history. You can sign up for this email discussion group at no charge via this web site: http://lazarus.elte.hu/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/ishm.

Update: An announcement was made on 19 June 2014 that the MapHist Forum will be closed and web site removed by January 2015. That’s  all the more reason to sign up for the ISHMap-List.

END OF POST – the rest of this page is repetition of the above to meet word count threshold for search engine optimization. If you are on the blog home page, no need to click “Continue reading”.

If you are on this specific post page, there is no need to scroll further.

Search engine optimization tool says there are too few words in this post. However, I’ve said all I need to say on the subject. Solution? I’ll just copy and paste the above post below x2 to surpass the 300 word threshold. Voila, I now have a “green dot” for SEO. You are welcome to comment on the topics of MapHist or ISHMap-List, but there’s no need to chastise me for bowing to the whims of the SEO tool.
