The Map & Geospatial Information Collection houses a geographically comprehensive collection of over 650,000 maps, 4,200 books and atlases, 1,000 compact discs, and many other related research materials.
The Collection is a full depository library for federal government maps and digital spatial data. This core historic collection is supplemented by detailed international topographic mapping, historic and modern city plans, nautical charts of the world's oceans and seas, geological maps, reproductions of rare or historic maps, aerial photographs, globes and a growing collection of GIS data.
Equipment for our users includes workstations with GIS and graphics software, 12" x 18" color scanners, CD-R and CD-RW recorders, a copy stand and a light table. Staff are available to help scan larger items using one of our large-size (42") color scanners. Nearby, the Library Copy Center provides an engineering size (3' x 4') B/W photocopier/scanner and an 11" x 17" color photocopier. An oversize color plotter is available in the Print Center of Olin Library and at Mann Library. Oversize color digitizing is available at DCAPS.
