Our map collection includes maps from federal, state, and local governments, nonprofit societies, and commercial firms. A few of the major map categories include U.S.G.S. topographic quadrangles, Forest Service maps, National Geographic Society maps, shaded relief maps of the world, and soil and vegetation maps of northern California.
Who Can Use:
The collection is open to students, faculty, staff and the public during regular library hours.
Checking Material Out:
Maps are non-circulating. Permission to check out a map for a class presentation is given on a case by case basis at Circulation & Reserve on the 1st Floor.
Special Collections owns a set of 15' USGS topographic maps made between the 1880s through the 1940s. The digitized images are in MrSid format which allows you to zoom and pan the maps.
This research guide lists maps and atlases found in print in the HSU Library and on the Internet that graphically depict California using maps. Entries include both static maps and map servers that dynamically produce custom maps based on parameters you specify.
