Geography Map Library

The Map Library is a reference collection of world mapping, atlases, tide tables, gazetteers and cartographic texts for teaching and academic research.

This includes a wide range of UK topographic cartography, from the Ordnance Survey First Edition quarter sheets of the 1830s to the latest open access Explorer 1:25,000 series, together with UK thematic maps at various scales. A range of commercial UK street plans, administrative maps, and European medium scale topographic maps are also stocked. There is a comprehensive coverage of Cambridge and East Anglia.

The atlas collection includes national and thematic atlases, with themes such as transportation, demography, economics, climatology, history, archaeology and war.
