About the Map Collection

About the Karen F. Jacob Map Collection

Morgan Library has approximately 80,000 maps and atlases of all types including physical, political, and thematic maps (vegetation, geologic, population, oceanographic). Maps and atlases are located in the Basement, North. Maps can be checked out for two weeks.  Reference Atlases are located on the First Floor, South.  Reference Altases do not circulate.


Locating a Map

Maps are classified using either Library of Congress (LC) call numbers or Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) numbers.

LC classed maps have records in the library catalog.  Most atlases are also classed in LC.

SuDoc classed maps come from federal government agencies. These call numbers correspond to a particular agency rather than to geography.  Many do not have records in SAGE, but finding tools for these are located at the Information Desk or in the map area as described below.  Within the SuDoc  system are topographic maps from several agencies including the United States Geological Survey.
