The 270,000 sheet map collection is located on the mezzanine of the library. Maps are shelved by call number in the map cases and file cabinets. Lists of map call numbers, arranged by country, state, or province are posted in several places around the mezzanine.

The collection includes maps on a wide range of social science and humanities topics; there is a strong collection of geological, seismological, hydrological, natural hazards, and natural resources maps. Approximately 65% of these maps are listed on Socrates. If you don't find what you want in Socrates, please come in and search the map cases or ask Julie Sweetkind-Singer , 725-1102 or Jane Ingalls , 725-1103.

USGS topographic maps in the 7.5 and 15-minute series are arranged alphabetically by state, and alphabetically by quadrangle name within each state. Indices to these topographic maps can be found filed state by state with their respective maps. The collection also includes topographic maps from around the world, filed by call number.

In addition to those in the map collection, many maps are cataloged as part of the book collection or appear within monographs and journals.

All circulating maps, may be borrowed for 28 days (graduate students and faculty borrow items by the quarter). Items are subject to recall after the initial seven days if needed by another borrower or immediately when needed for course reserve. Items not needed by another borrower may be renewed.
