Maps in the Hawaiian Collection

Hawaiian Collection Maps (PDF)

  • The Hawaiian Collection houses historical, USGS, zoning, and voting district maps of the Hawaiian Islands.

  • All maps are for library use only and must remain in the Hawaiian Collection.

  • Hawaiʻi Island maps are kept in a locked cabinet and access requires the assistance of a Hawaiian Collection staff member or student assistant. A prospective user might have to return at a later time if no one is available to unlock the cabinets.

  • Maps of the other islands in the unlocked cabinets may be accessed at any time.

  • Patrons are asked to leave maps on the map cases rather than refiling them.
