Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection


Publisher: University of Texas at Austin

More than twenty-five thousand maps, most in the public domain, have been digitized at the Perry-Castañeda Library at the University of Texas at Austin. Although there is an emphasis on Texas, maps from around the world also are available. Of special interest in the Historical Collection, which contains earlier editions of U.S. Central Intelligence Agency maps, U.S. Army maps, and U.S. Geological Surveys, among others. In the unlikely event that you can't find a suitable map for your project, the site offers advice on searching for specific maps online. These quality images are a delight to view and would enhance any presentation. --Review in Reference & User Services Quarterly, Fall 2010.
