large metal cabinets containing mapsThe library's maps, and many newer atlases, are housed in the Map Collection, located on the second floor. The items in this collection do not circulate, but you are welcome to use them in the map area. There you will also find instructions for locating maps. Individual maps are kept in the large metal cabinets; bound maps such as atlases are kept on the shelves near the cabinets.

Our holdings consist largely of Army Map Service maps covering almost every part of the world, but also include contemporary and historical maps of Wisconsin, historical and commercial atlases, road maps, U.S. Geological Survey quadrangle maps and historical British maps.

If you have difficulty finding a map, please do not hesitate to ask a reference librarian for assistance.
