    Abstract:
    The Metadata Construction and Digitizing Maps of Afghanistan and Pakistan project will enable collation, digitization, cataloguing, library indexing, analysis, storage, and eventual selective publication of all relevant and unique mapped and written materials on Afghanistan and Pakistan to make them available to the public worldwide and to preserve them for posterity. The original maps and digital surrogates will be housed and maintained in the Arthur Paul Collection in the University of Nebraska at Omaha Criss Library and financially sustained by the Center for Afghanistan Studies after the grant period is over. The long-term benefits to research, education, and public programming in the humanities provided by this project is a valuable and one-of-a-kind source of unique data on a country that hosted America's longest war.
    Notes:
    A Foundations project to plan the cataloging and digitization of a collection of ca. 12,000 maps and ancillary materials on Afghanistan and Pakistan.
