Most maps in the Stewart
Library's Map Collection are published by the United States
government and are distributed to Weber through the University's
participation in the U.S. Depository Library Program. Almost all
maps of the United States in the Map Collection are produced by
or in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey. Maps are
located in the Reference Department, Middle Level North.
Topographic maps of the
United States are arranged alphabetically by State and by Quadrangle
name. Each quadrangle is named according to a prominent geographic
feature. The topographic maps are located on the Middle Level North,
in map cases.
For Utah Maps see the
7.5 minute Quadrangle Names Map attached to the top of the map cabinets.
The Index to Topographic
and other Map Coverage are guides to individual quadrangle
maps available for each state are on top of the south map
cabinet (green booklets). Look for the STATE INDEX
sign. Use indexes to find the maps available for each state,
then find the appropriate state drawer and locate the named
map. The Catalogs of Topographic and other Published
Maps for each state are located in the same area (brown
booklets) and contain a catalog of USGS published maps for each
state. We have many, but not all of the state maps.
