How to Find Maps in the Library

Begin by searching the catalog (see illustration to the right).  The library collects primarily the following:

Geologic Survey Maps (numbers beginning with I 19.  These include

                  Colorado Topographic maps (I 19.81:) and

                  U.S. Topographic maps I 19.98:).

Bureau of Land Management maps (numbers beginning with I 53.)

NOTE:  many maps received before 2007 are not cataloged. See shelf list or ask for assistance.

If you do not find what you need in the catalog, check Prospector, and then Illiad (Interlibrary loan).

Finally, search some of the online resources in the box below.

Catalog Search for Maps

Go to the library catalog's advanced search page.

  1. Using the keyword search, enter search terms (for example, the name of a location for which you want a map).
  2. Fom the material type drop down menu, select MAPS.
  3. Maps may be located in Maps, Oversize maps, Gov. Docs, Colo Docs, or online, so you may or may not want to limit your search by one of those locations.
  4. Click on the Submit button.
