Maps in the Yale Library Collections

Yale University Library recently resumed access to its map collections, following work over the last six months on a major digitization project that will eventually create digital (or raster) images of the approximately 20,000 rare sheet maps that have been transferred from Sterling Memorial Library to the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Same-sex marriage has evolved from a far-fetched notion to established law in the United States over the past four decades. At the forefront of this modern civil rights movement has been a Yale alumnus, Evan Wolfson ’78. Wolfson wrote his Harvard Law School thesis on same-sex marriage long before it became a topic of national & local activism. He founded Freedom to Marry in 2001, serving as its president until the Supreme Court’s historic 2015 decision guaranteeing marriage equality.
