(Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) I follow the blog of the Massachusetts State Library, and a while back they posted that the State Library has finished scanning a group of 45 real estate atlases covering communities in the state of Massachusetts. You can find the original blog post here along with the link to the atlas database.
The database is great! I've used the actual physical version of one of the atlases that is now online for my research any number of times at the library. While its nice to flip the pages by hand, it is also nice to now have access from home when the library is closed. You can save the atlases you are interested in as a .pdf file and keep a copy on your computer's hard drive!
