Maps & Atlases

The Library has an excellent collection of maps available at the following locations:

Reference Collection

Atlases are available on the shelves of the Reference Collection and on the nearby atlas stands. Duplicate, circulating copies of some of these atlases may also be found in the General and Hawaiian Collections. There are also a few globes that grace the Reference area.

Hawaiian Collection

Detailed U.S. Geological Survey Maps of each island are found here, as are older Territorial Survey Maps of Hawaiʻi Island. These maps are non-circulating. The Library also provides online access to the historical Digital Sanborn Maps for the state of Hawaiʻi, going back to 1914 for some locales.

General Maps Collection

Maps for the World and various countries and regions, including those published by National Geographic Society, filed in drawers by region. CIA country and region maps are filed in a separate, nearby map case or can be found via the CIA Factbook online .
