The Map & Geospatial Information Collection in Olin Library offers instruction, reference, and consulting as well as computer hardware, software, and access to a wide range of geospatial resources. Currently, it contains over 650,000 maps, 4,200 books and atlases, and 1,000 compact discs. The collections and services are available to all students, faculty, and staff of Cornell University and also to visitors from outside the University.
Map Staff are available to answer your questions, to help you identify pertinent materials, and to assist you in using the map storage area. They can help you to locate and interpret maps for your research or for classroom presentation, to locate data for your GIS, and to use a variety of digital mapping programs. We provide e-mail reference service to the Cornell community as well as non-Cornell patrons. Please use our online request form to post a question or to schedule a consultation.
The Map Room is located on the Lower Level of Olin Library adjacent to the Media Center. See below for information about our collections, services, and hours of operation, including links to useful geographic and cartographic internet sites.
