Map Collection

The U of T Mississauga Library has a small but extensive collection of paper maps for research and teaching. The collection is located on the first level of the Library near Smart Classrooms. Unlike books in our collection, our map collection is uncatalogued. Maps do not circulate. The maps are organized by series.

  • National Topographic Maps
  • National Geologic Maps
  • Thematic Maps

To receive help with the Map Collection please visit Room 360 (AstraZeneca Canada Centre for Information and Technological Literacy) of the HMALC Library.
