A newly configured Map Services area opens in the John C. Hodges Library on Wednesday, January 9. The ground floor space, which was used as a computer lab prior to the expansion of the Commons on the 2nd floor of Hodges, now houses a diverse collection of books, atlases, globes, digital resources, geographic software, and over 300,000 sheet maps.
We invite you to visit the Hodges Map Services area and take advantage of the varied resources that support research, teaching, and the every day need for map and geographic information. Services and resources are available onsite to the general public as well as to UT students and staff. Materials are available for checkout to UT students and staff and UT-affiliated borrowers.
Map collections and services were previously located in the basement of the James D. Hoskins Library. The core collection of topographic and geologic maps received through the federal depository program were maintained by the university geography department from the 1940s until the University Libraries assumed the collection in 1989. In addition to sheet maps and other materials, today’s Map Services features computers, Geographic Information System (GIS) software, GPS equipment, and expert staff who are available to help users access digital geospatial data.
