This page describes some of the Map Collections of maps in printed and scanned formats. Many of our historic maps are in the UO Libraries' Catalog. Maps that are part of large sets are most likely described by one of the links below. Some of these lists refer to maps that may not be held at the UO Libraries. GIS Data and interactive maps are found elsewhere.
