From glovebox to archive: Private collector gives huge trove of road maps to Stanford

"They're thought of as ephemera – a map that stays in the car and you use it until you throw it away," said Julie Sweetkind-Singer, head librarian of Stanford's Branner Earth Sciences Library and Map Collections. "It's a source of research information, just in a different format – a cartographic format instead of a text  format," she said. "It's one of the most significant road map collections in the West."
