Q: Where is the Map Collection?
Answered by: Jonas Baker

The maps collection, which encompases most pre-1900 era maps, has been moved to the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library.  All questions regarding the maps collection should be referred to Margit Kaye (margit.kaye@yale.edu or telephone # (203)432-1867).   

As part of the move, the Beinecke Library has been digitizing more than 20,000 maps, which will now be available in the Beinecke’s Digital Library at http://brbl-dl.library.yale.edu/vufind/. This is an ongoing project with new images added weekly. For more information about this digitization project see the earlier announcement:  http://web.library.yale.edu/news/2015/06/transfer-pre-1900-map-collection-beinecke-library

Non-rare maps and other volumes formerly located in the Maps Collection, and maps at LSF, are findable in Orbis and will be accessible for use at CSSSI by sending email requests to csssi@yale.edu.
