About the print map collection

The Concordia University Library print map collection is located in the Webster Library, on the 3rd floor near the north staircase, Mackay side (see its exact location on a floor plan). It is accessible during regular library hours. To help you find maps in the collection, there is a set of map indexes located at the Ask Us! desk. The staff and librarians at that desk will also be able to provide more information or help. Please drop by during service hours.

Below is a complete list of the map series in our collection.
