The Map Library is now open! Our hours may change through the school year - please watch our website for details. We can also serve your GIS consulting and map-related needs via email or phone. Some of our non-circulating materials could be scanned, and others could be made available for viewing at a designated location. Circulating items may be paged using the library catalog’s Get It! Button. Please see our website for links to online resources and to the Ask a Map Librarian form.
