Finding Maps

About maps and atlases

All maps and atlases are cataloged and listed in the Dartmouth College Library Catalog. You can search for them by author, title, subject, or keyword by setting the collections menu to Maps & Atlases. Please note, this only applies to geographical maps and atlases. Not all atlases in the Library Catalog are tagged as atlases, so for comprehensive results, set the menu to Entire Collection when searching for atlases.
