Introduction

The term 'newsletter' has been defined widely here. Some titles are simultaneously newsletters and journals, for example the IMCoS Journal, Mapline and The Portolan (which therefore appear both here and on the Journals page). All the titles listed here combine local/society news with at least some elements of wider interest.

This page has the following main purposes:-

For several societies and organisations, its newsletter/journal provides the main benefit of membership. They are understandably reluctant to give this away free. However, they might want to consider mounting on the web a sample issue, or sample elements (as is done by the Road Map Collectors Association). Alternatively, might there be some way that the general elements in these newsletters (rather than the local and specific ones), which collectively make a valuable contribution to map collecting or to the history of cartography, could be shared? If any of the articles were mounted on the web [and hence included in the Web Articles pages] this would provide excellent publicity for the society concerned.

Another possibility would be for somebody to compile and maintain an index to newsletter articles (so that users know what to seek in a research library). A further thought would be to seek some form of syndication among the newsletter/journals of material that has general interest. Their current readership presumably has little overlap, since most people belong to just one society. Certainly, the present arrangements mean that much valuable material misses a large part of its potential audience.

Some of the newsletter-type information can also be found via titles listed on the Journals page: Map Forum, Caert-Thresoor (Dutch) and Cartographica Helvetica (German-language). For other sources, see the News page.

In the entries that follow, links are made to the listing of 'Map Societies around the World', maintained by James Speed Hensinger.
