Why Use Images and Maps? Spatial information provides rich layers of content and can clarify or support written information. Consider including them in your research or consult a map or image to help make connections to enrich understanding. The right map or image can be found on a single sheet or parts of a bigger whole in both paper or digital formats.

Citing Maps: Remember it is important and easy to cite maps - get help with citing maps.

Print (paper) Maps

The Carleton Library's print map collection, curated over the last 60 years, is a legacy collection on a variety of topics, dates and scales, useful for layering current data and information. Timelines can reveal trends or patterns, vital for in-depth research. For details on scanning print maps, ask staff in Archives and Special Collections.

Print (paper maps) are searchable in OMNI. Just add "map" to your search term.
