Accessing the Map Collection During the Pandemic

For your safety, we have modified our services and spaces to comply with University of Oregon COVID-19 regulations.

Access to and borrowing from UO Libraries is limited to current UO students, faculty, and staff.

To limit the potential spread of COVID-19 by contact with potentially contaminated surfaces, we encourage you to ask us to retrieve maps and atlases for you rather than retrieving them yourself.  UO faculty, students, and staff may email Map Staff with your requests. If you do not have an exact call number, describe what you are looking for and Map Staff will contact you about what is available and how to access it.  You may also contact Map Staff or go to the Cartographic and Spatial Data Librarian's web page to schedule a consultation about map resources.

Many commonly requested maps such as USGS topographic maps are available Online. Check out the Online Maps Guides.

Please be aware that only a limited number of library employees are on campus at a time to support teaching and learning for the entire UO community.

Assistance with GIS software is available by appointment. Contact the Cartographic and Spatial Data Librarian.
