Our Map Collection

The Hillman Library map collection contains a wide variety of maps:

  • General maps include resources such as historical, thematic, and road maps, and maps published by the National Geographic Society and the Army Map Service and Defense Mapping Agency..
  • Government Publications maps are maps received from the U.S. government through Federal Depository Library Program. These include CIA maps, census maps, forestry maps, and maps from various other government agencies.
  • Our USGS Topographic Maps, also received through the depository program, provide detailed topographic coverage in various scales for the entire U.S.
  • In addition to all of these paper maps, we have geographic data available through the GIS Service Center.

Location of our Map Collection

The Hillman Library map collection is located on the ground floor of the library, near the Cup & Chaucer Cafe. When you enter on the ground floor, proceed past the service desk. The map collection will be ahead and to your right.
