Atlas of Historical County Boundaries of South Carolina
from The Newberry Library - Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture. Since its establishment as a British colony, South Carolina's county boundaries have changed many times. This resource offers
an interactive map that illustrates these changes. Additionally, shapefiles can be downloaded for use in GIS applications. We have found this resource to be particularly helpful for georeferencing older specimens and assigning
correct, modern county equivalents to 19th-century geopolitical subunits (e.g. Parish, District, etc.).

South Carolina has a long history of natural history exploration that has been documented by many individuals over time. We hope to continue to build this list through collaboration with community partners.
Bionomia is a tool developed by David P. Shorthouse that facilitates attribution of collection objects (specimens) to people who collected or identified them. While the
primary objective of Bionomia is to give credit where credit is due, the interface also provides opportunities for biographical research. Since Bionomia integrates seemlessly with other resources like
ORCiD, WIKIDATA, and GBIF, there are numerous opportunities to resolve
aliases associated with collections personnel.
