Sources of current, historical and thematic maps online and in print in the Monroe Library.
The library’s online catalog contains information about the books, e-books, music scores, videos (both DVD and VHS), and sound recordings that the library owns. The catalog also contains detailed information about the print journal and magazine titles that the library owns, but it does not contain citations for individual articles. For more help in using the catalog, ask a librarian, review our FAQs.
Maps have been used as long as someone needed to go somewhere. The Monroe Library maintains a collection of atlases, or pritned collections of maps. The Library does not have sheet maps, like those from the U. S. Geological Survey.
If you need assistance locating a print map or atlas, please ask for a reference librarian at the Learning Commons Desk.
