Most maps at MNHS can be found in the library catalog. In the catalog, you can conduct a search for maps in a couple of different ways:
When conducting a map search in the catalog, be sure to select "Maps and Atlases" in the dropdown menu at the bottom of the screen.
Map call numbers in our catalog begin with the letter G. Most MNHS maps also have a sizing code such as 2f, 4f, 6f or 8f (2f being the smallest size and 8f the largest).
Given the wide breadth of materials found in MNHS' map collection, you may not find exactly what you are looking for when searching the catalog. Detailed notes about our map records' call numbers can be found behind the reference desk. Please speak to a librarian if you need further assistance locating maps at MNHS.
Please visit the Online Resources page for more information about finding maps that have been digitized and are available online.
