Most maps in the Stewart
Library's Map Collection are published by the United States
government and are recieved 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 on the 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 Catalog 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.
