U.S. Government

Tips for finding government maps

Google is one of the best ways to locate US government information on the web. To find maps created or owned by government agencies, you can Google "[location] maps site:.gov", replacing [location] with the area of your choice. By limiting to only .gov sites, you will only find materials produced by US government agencies. Colgate Libraries also own many print maps, which can be viewed within the building on Level 3.
