The Library's substantial map collection comprises many different types of map, both historical and current. Maps are available in print and manuscript format, on microfilm, and electronically. The Library acquires cartographic material on legal deposit, by purchase and donation. The collection is constantly being developed as resources permit. Most maps relate to the island of Ireland, but there is a small collection of international maps.

A collection of geographical and other types of atlas is held in the Atlas Collection, usually on the First Floor. Atlases can also be found in the main book collections. Search the Library catalogue on  www.library.nuigalway.ie for atlases in your chosen subject.

Please see Map Resources in the Library and Online for detailed information about our map holdings.
