Preserving the Ephemeral at the GLO — Digitizing the John and Diana Cobb Map Collection
As part of the General Land Office's (GLO) mission to preserve Texas history for future generations and make accessible the historical documents that form the foundation of Texas' public land system, the agency has spent over two decades digitizing its archival holdings and making them available online to the public.
