Maine Historical Society (Portland, ME 04101-3498)
Jamie Rice (Project Director: July 2019 to present)
Beyond Borders: Mapping Maine and the American Northeast Boundary, 1625-1893

Providing access to three archival collections that document Maine’s history from 1625 to 1893 through the Maine Memory Network website. The project would provide more than 21,000 images with metadata, as well as some transcriptions and contextual essays.

The Beyond Borders: Mapping Maine and the American Northeast Boundary, 1625-1893 project seeks to create an engaging online space where scholars, students and the general public can find, access, and explore three collections which relate to Maine’s land use, natural resources, economic distribution and Wabanaki sovereignty. These collections document the settlement and establishment of northern New England, specifically coastal and interior Maine and along the Canadian border. Using our digital history platform Maine Memory Network (www.MaineMemory.net) as a base, we will create a rich historic narrative and online presentation for each collection that puts material in context. From this narrative, visitors can access a finding aid for each collection and dig deeper into fully-digitized content, which will provide an internet user anywhere in the world with the ability to browse each page of the collection in the same fashion as one would approach the collection in person.
