Welcome to the Maps Guide

This guide provides a brief introduction to the maps and atlases found in the Scarborough Library as well as other resources available for the research, creation and use of maps.

The Reference Collection

The Reference area has a set of shelves labeled "ATLASES" where many of the more recent (or popular) bound maps are kept. This set of shelves faces the wall holding the water fountains and is relatively close to the map case.
