Welcome to the Maps guide. Use the tabs above to explore our resources.
The University Library has a collection of about 70,000 maps and atlases. The majority of maps are reference only, but there is a Field collection on the 2nd Floor which can be borrowed with your Campus/Library card. Atlases are mostly on the 4th Floor and can also be borrowed.
If you need to consult maps please contact Judith Fox, the Map Librarian. She can advise on the types of maps available and guide you to the ones most suited to your needs.
The OS blog is on a range of geography related topics - use the categories menu to choose a topic e.g. cartography
