General Resources
The University of Florida Map & Imagery
Library has over 495,000 maps and 165,000
aerial photos and satellite images. It is among
the top five academic map libraries in the
United States. The Map & Imagery Library has
general map coverage, topographic and
thematic, world-wide. Specialties of the
collection include Florida, Latin America, the
United States, Africa, and the Holy Land.

An extensive collection of atlases, CD-ROMs,
and gazetteers supplements the maps. These
collections include resources for specific as well
as general areas. GIS information and assistance
are provided by the Government Documents
Department. The Map & Imagery Library has
numerous databases and workstations. In
addition there is special GIS Librarian who can
be found at http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/docs/.

Research Assistance
Research/reference assistance is available
during hours the Map & Imagery Library is
open. All atlases, most CDs, and over half of our
maps are listed in the online WebLUIS catalog at
http://www.uflib.ufl.edulwl.html under
"UF Libraries' Catalog" We recommend using
the "advanced" search for more options. Faculty
may place maps and atlases on reserve in the
Map & Imagery Library. Tours and group
instruction are available upon request.


Three-dimensional maps

Most maps may be checked out of the
Map & Imagery Library by faculty, staff, and
students for a one-week period, with the
possibility of an additional week's renewal.
Some items, such as rare maps, aerial photos,
atlases, and items on reserve, do not circulate.

* Several black and white copy machines are
located near the Map Library for patrons.
* There are also two scanners available, one
with an 1 l"xl7"bed. For those using the
scanners, the best storage option is a blank
CD brought by the patron to burn large
image files to disk.
* The Office of Academic Technology (OAT)
offers a photographic reproduction option as
well: http://www.at.ufl.edul.
* Copyright laws do apply to most items in
the Map & Imagery Library.
