Geology: Library Map Collection

The study or science of the earth, its history, and its life as recorded in the rocks; the study of geologic features of an area.


United States topographic maps are located in the Libraries storage facility. Maps are requestable by quadrangle name at the Science Library service desk.

Indexes to the maps are filed on a low shelving unit in the basement of the Science Library.

Maps circulate to patrons with a valid ID.

Maps are expected to be returned in the same condition in which they went out. Please do not fold the maps. Replacement fees will be billed to a patron who returns a map in damaged condition.
