Cartographic Collection of the State Archives in Zadar

Josip Faričić


The State Archives in Zadar published the book Cartographic Collection of the State Archives in Zadar, 2022, ISBN 978-953-7434-42-7, 495 pages. The author of the book is the Head of the Department for Information and Documentation Affairs with the User Service of the State Archives in Zadar, specialist archivist Tamara Šarić-Šušak, and the introductory study entitled Cartographic Content in the Funds, Collections and Library of the State Archives in Zadar was written by archival consultant Dubravka Kolić. The book was proofread by Josip Galić and the summary was translated into English by Janet Berković. The book was reviewed by Mirjana Jurić and the signatory of this text. Senior archivist Robert Leljak and archival technician Marija Kero prepared the index, while archival technician reprographer Tomislav Vrsaljko and archival technician reprographer Ivana-Marija Čuka created a digital reproduction of the maps. Nevenka Kalebić helped the author systematise and measure the map dimensions, and Josip Gjergja assisted the author in determining the scale of the maps. The graphic assistant was senior archivist Denis Martinović, and the graphic design was done by Studio Grafikart. The quality printing is the merit of the Kerschoffset printing house. The commitment of many archivists who helped their colleagues indicates great intra-institutional potential. This book is the work of the author, but also the result of the systematic efforts of the entire institution. Indeed, the State Archives in Zadar, under the long-standing leadership of Director Ante Gverić, have made much progress in inventorying, systematising and digitising old maps, and digitised cartographic archive material is currently being processed and published on the archive's website. This will greatly improve the visibility and availability of the old maps stored in various funds and collections, as well as in the library of the State Archives in Zadar.
