Since 2000, the General Land Office Archives has been at the forefront of digitizing historic documents and maps.

More than 3 million full-color, hi-resolution images are available online and for reproduction, with approximately 10,000 images scanned every month.

Digitization services are available to state agencies, non-profit historical and archival institutions, and private collectors that would like to make their historic manuscript or map collection(s) available to the public.

We have digitized maps and manuscript collections for institutions like the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, non-profits like the Sons of the Republic of Texas, as well as several private collectors.

For private collectors, as well as institutions, this is a great way to share the collection that you have meticulously curated; provide access that may not be available elsewhere; and support the Save Texas History program because funds generated by map reproductions go towards conservation.

If you have a manuscript or map collection that you would like to inquire about digitizing and making available through the Texas General Land Office, please contact
