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 4th Floor which can be borrowed with your Campus/Library card. Atlases are mostly on the 4th Floor and can also be borrowed. Atlases with the call number 'Oversize MF' are shelved separately on the 4th Floor.
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 New York metropolitan area is the most linguistically diverse urban centre in the world, with speakers of approximately 10% of the world’s languages. The NYC Languages map shows nearly 700 languages and dialects confirmed to nearly 1200 significant sites.
