Introduction to the Collection:

Although some maps, atlases, and geospatial information can be found via the MIRLYN catalog and through research guides, users are encouraged to visit the Clark Library on the second floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library in order to have access to the entire collection and the expertise of the library staff. Materials are available with the help of reference services, to all patrons interested in viewing the maps in our collection.

For information on searching for these resources look at the Finding Map Resources in MIRLYN research guide.
