Strozier's Map Collection includes several thousand bound volumes that deal with maps and geography.
A large portion of the collection includes atlases of the world, but we also have more detailed atlases which are devoted to specific regions or historical eras. To find these items, try conducting an advanced search in our catalog with relevant search terms, as well as the world "atlas" then select "Strozier, Maps" next to the "Location" option.
In addition to Atlases, Strozier's Map Collection also has books about maps and geography. These items include studies of place names, cartography, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and may provide helpful context for anyone consulting current and historical maps. To locate these items in the catalog, try adding "cartography" or "GIS" as search terms to see what you can find.
Strozier Map Books are shelved in the Scholars Commons, between Rows 43 and 53.
Regular-sized Map books are shelved in Rows 43 and 44.
Oversized Map books are shelved on top of the sheet map cabinets, between Rows 45 and 53.
