Maps: World Maps

Catalog of maps in the Blume Library and links to find more maps on the Web.

How to use the Catalog

worldThe maps listed on this page are divided into these categories, each with its own box: 

  • Political maps of the world
  • Historical maps (maps published before 1980, or those with a historical theme)
  • Population-related maps
  • Geology-related maps (note that the Environmental Science Dept., in Garni Hall, has a large collection of geological and topographic maps)
  • Health-related maps
  • Miscellaneous thematic maps (published after 1980)

flags

The numbers given after the title, authoring agency and date for each map give its location in the Map File Case.  The first two numbers of the three-part number for each map refer to groups of folders within the Map File Case.  The final number is a unique sequential number for the particular map.

Remember that the maps listed here are only the large maps (substantially larger than standard letter-size) that are filed in the Map File Case.  For information on other map locations in the Blume Library, see our main Maps Page.

Historical Maps of the World

NOTE: These maps may not have originally been published to be historical in nature.  Maps published prior to 1980 are listed here since they may be of historical interest.  Other maps with historical themes (e.g., Colonization of the New World) can be found in the section of the Map Catalog which represents the geographical area covered.  There are several historical maps listed in the INTERCONTINENTAL REGIONS section of the catalog.
