Map Collections

IUB's map collection is the largest in the state of Indiana. The primary focus of the collection is on Indiana, but it contains maps from nearly every country in the world. Below are some of the collection highlights, but please search IUCAT or contact for more maps. See Find Maps for tips on searching for maps in IUCAT.

The major map collections of the IUB Libraries are housed on the 2nd floor of the East Tower of the Herman B Wells Library. Exceptions are geologic maps and some rare maps. The former are located in the Geosciences Library (601 Geology, 1001 E. 10th Street) and the latter are in the Lilly Library.

We also offer GIS Services and, through a partnership with the Geocaching Club at IUB, GPS kits are available for check out.
