Access information:

·PURLs provided through Searchworks

·Large map sets (10 or more maps) accessed through an index map viewer with links to the PURLs – ArcGIS Online: http://arcg.is/2w8VYKJ.  

·Topic guide : http://library.stanford.edu/guides/gaihozu-japanese-imperial-maps

Corpus information:

·Through the ArcGIS index portal, the top 10 index maps have been viewed over 460,000 times.
