Map Collection at ISU

Parks Library Map Collection now located in the Media Center on the Lower Level.

The Map Collection contains all types of maps, atlases, charts and globes. Included are US Geological Survey topographic maps, road maps, US and foreign city maps, national and state atlases, maps of national parks and forests, and thematic maps of most sections of the world. Iowa materials include county highway maps, county plat books, and aerial photographs.

Most sheet maps and atlases may be checked out of the building for two weeks. Aerial photographs, globes, raised relief maps, and selected sheet maps and atlases do not circulate outside of the room.
