Library DIY

Navigating UWG library resources and research


Find maps in the UWG Library catalog

To search for maps through the UWG Library Catalog type the relevant location (for example "Cuba") into the search box. On the page of results, there is a menu on the left-hand side that says "Refine My Results" and then has "Format" as an option. Select Maps in that list.

You can also add keywords about the type of map you need (for example: "Geology" or "Interstate 69"). Or you can search for maps by the subject depicted on the map. For example, you can search the term "economic" and then limit by Format to Maps.

Most of the print maps in Ingram Library are on the 3rd floor next to the elevator.

Finding maps online

There are several sites you might want to explore to find maps. The United States Geologic Survey (USGS) has many different kinds of maps. The Digital Library of Georgia has a collection of historical maps. And the University of Texas at Austin's Perry-Castañeda library offers links to numerous online maps.
