Northwestern University's cartographic collection was established circa 1947 as an official depository for the US Army Map Service. Most maps in the library are centralized and housed in Main Library (B190) as part of the Government and Geographic Information collection.
Northwestern's cartographic collection focuses on local and international maps including Illinois, the Great Lakes, Africa, and World War II ephemera. Types of maps include topographic and thematic.
