What Is the Atlas? A project of the William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture at The Newberry Library in Chicago, the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries is a powerful historical research and reference tool in electronic form. The Atlas presents in maps and text complete data about the creation and all subsequent changes (dated to the day) in the size, shape, and location of every county in the fifty United States and the District of Columbia. It also includes non-county areas, unsuccessful authorizations for new counties, changes in county names and organization, and the temporary attachments of non-county areas and unorganized counties to fully functioning counties. The principal sources for these data are the most authoritative available: the session laws of the colonies, territories, and states that created and changed the counties. What makes this Atlas stand out? A dozen features distinguish the volumes and files of this atlas from other compilations. 1) All boundary changes in states and counties-unrivaled historical and geographic coverage. 2) Non-county areas-never before compiled or mapped. 3) Attachments to operational counties (non-county areas and unorganized counties)-never before compiled or mapped. 4) Separate map or polygon for every different county configuration-clarity and ease of use. 5) Based on original research in primary sources-unlike most reference works. 6) Primary sources cited for every change-unmatched documentation. 7) Information organized by both date and county-unmatched flexibility. 8) Locator maps for all county maps-show each county's location within its state. 9) Area (sq. mi.) for each county configuration-available nowhere else. 10) Polygons available in two formats: shapefiles and KMZ-broad applicability. 11) Supplementary bibliography, chronologies, and commentary-unusually complete and thorough data presentation. 12) Short and Long metadata documents for each state dataset-convenience and completeness.

From FAQ: "Is the Bookkeeper Deacidification Process effective? Treated materials have been tested and compared with untreated control samples in independent tests conducted by the Library of Congress, the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (Atlanta), the Image Permanence Institute (Rochester), the Institut Royal du Patrimoine Artistique (Belgium), TNO Centre for Paper and Board Research (The Netherlands), Berner Fachhochschule (Switzerland), and the American Philatelic Society (State College). By using accelerated aging, these tests have shown that treatment by the Bookkeeper process should extend the usable life of paper based materials by a factor of at least 3-5 times. Although artificial aging does not exactly reproduce natural aging effects, the nature of the test is to err on the low side, and we expect the resultant life extension of treatment will exceed the predictions of accelerated aging."

Risk If a certain disease runs in your family, you may be at risk. To be at risk for a disease means you have a chance of getting it —but you also maybe able to prevent it. Common Risk-Associated Diseases Most common diseases result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. We inherit genetic factors that make us more or less susceptible to developing a particular disease. But our overall health is also a product of our environment. Learn more about these diseases, who is at risk, and how that risk can be reduced.

Mission Genetic Alliance is one of the world’s leading nonprofit health advocacy organizations. We engage individuals, families, and communities to transform health. Trying to find information and interventions for disease, searching for health information, and/or trying to find ways to participate in research is difficult. We create ways to make it easier to find or build solutions in health services and research. Our network includes more than 1,200 disease-specific advocacy organizations, as well as thousands of universities, private companies, government agencies, and public policy organizations. The network is a dynamic and growing open space for shared resources, creative tools, and innovative programs. Since 1986, Genetic Alliance has defined the intersection of health and genetics. Originally founded as an alliance for support groups, our work has evolved along with the growing health advocacy movement and the rapid advancement of genetic technology. While our roots are in genetics, we recognize that meaningful solutions that improve health must be multidisciplinary. To that end, we apply solutions in health and disease, practice and prevention, and on the local and global level. Through our broad and diverse partnerships, we have created a dynamic network that serves as an open space for sharing valuable resources, creative tools, and innovative programs.

The Geography and Map Division of the Library of Congress holds more than 4.5 million items, of which Map Collections represents only a small fraction, those that have been converted to digital form. The focus of Map Collections is Americana and Cartographic Treasures of the Library of Congress. These images were created from maps and atlases and, in general, are restricted to items that are not covered by copyright protection. Map Collections is organized according to seven major categories. Because a map will be assigned to only one category, unless it is part of more than one core collection, searching Map Collections at this level will provide the most complete results since the indexes for all categories are searched simultaneously.

The 'Sanborn® Fire Insurance Company Maps of Florida' comprise a collection of more than 300 bibliographic units in more than 3,000 map sheets. The maps were mainly designed to help fire insurance agents determine the degree of damage to a property and show accurate information to help them determine risks and establish premiums. They showed the size (including color-coding), shape and construction of buildings (brick, adobe, frame, etc), dwellings (including hotels and churches), and other structures such as bridges, docks and barns. Along with fire stations, you could also find water facilities, sprinklers, hydrants, cisterns, and alarm boxes as well as firewalls, windows, doors, elevators and chimneys and roof types. The maps included street names, property boundaries and lot lines, and house and block numbers. Other information such as the latest census figures, prevailing winds; railroad lines and Indian reservations and topography were included. Today, the maps are an invaluable guide to inner-city history, land use, and historic preservation. This collection of public domain maps was digitized from the printed maps held in the collections of the Smathers Libraries' Map & Imagery Library, on the campus of the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL). It has five maps of Fernandina Insurance maps of Fernandina, Florida ( 5 map sets ) 1) Fernandina, Nassau County, Florida, 1897 2) Fernandina, Nassau County, Florida, 1891 3) Fernandina, Nassau County, Florida, 1884 4) Fernandina, Nassau County, Florida, 1909 5) Fernandina, Nassau County, Florida, 1903

The National Human Genome Research Institute began as the National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR), which was established in 1989 to carry out the role of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the International Human Genome Project (HGP). The HGP was developed in collaboration with the United States Department of Energy and begun in 1990 to map the human genome. In 1993, NCHGR expanded its role on the NIH campus by establishing the Division of Intramural Research to apply genome technologies to the study of specific diseases. In 1996, the Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) was also established (co-funded by eight NIH institutes and centers) to study the genetic components of complex disorders.
