"If there was ever an electronic tool that could turn an inveterate Luddite into a fan of technology, this is it. The British Library Map Catalogue. . .is dazzling in its simplicity, thrilling in its scope, and deeply gratifying in what it allows you to recover from the library's cartobibliographical attic".
Mercator's World (March/April 2000)
"This CD-ROM is a well-designed program that allows you to search the extensive holdings of the Map Library of the British Library published in several different books; namely the 19 printed volumes of the map catalogues and the post-1974 automated file...There are 189,240 main records plus approximately 18,000 subsequent editions and over 8,000 further copies of items on the CD-ROM...[This] is an excellent reference source, and it should be on the map collector's bookshelf..."
-- John W. Docktor in the International Map Collectors' Society Journal
"The William C. Wonders Map Collection has had this CD-ROM for several months now and have put it to use in a number of different ways, all of which have proved the claims for it and justified its purchase price....Do try to make this a priority purchase for your library. This is an important item for any map collection to acquire."
-- Bulletin of the Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (Fall 2000)
"...the British Library Map Catalogue is a magnificent achievement. It is straightforward to use, fields can be easily combined for complex search strategies, the geographical tree is a sensible way to index areas and the help files and searching guide are comprehensive and for once actually do help."
