Maps and Atlases


The NCSU Libraries' map collection contains print maps and charts which provide topographic, geologic and thematic coverage of North Carolina, the United States and foreign countries.

Atlases and many other publications also contain maps, so if you do not find what you need, please ask for help!

Location and Access

Alert Please note changes! There have been several changes in the map collection locations in the past several years. The current locations are as follows:

  • The latest print versions of USGS topographical maps for the state of North Carolina, in the 7.5 minute series, are now located on the second floor, West Wing, North Tower stacks against the wall facing Hillsborough Street.
  • All other maps have been moved to the Satellite Shelving Facility, including superceded North Carolina 7.5 minute topographic maps.

    Maps can be delivered from Satellite to the  library location of your choice within 24 hours.  By appointment, users affiliated with NCSU may also visit the Satellite Shelving Facility on Sullivan Drive and view maps in the reading room.  To make an appointment with Satellite staff, call 513-7190 or send email to:  satellite@ncsu.edu
