Map Library

The Map Library is one of our special collections and holds a variety of maps and charts from around the world, including a substantial collection of historic Ordnance Survey maps of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The Map Librarian will help you locate what you need and can provide guidance on using electronic map resources, including Digimap.

Some of our map series, including folded copies of the OS Landranger and Outdoor Leisure maps and British Geological Survey 1:50,000 maps are available for loan.

The Map Library can also scan documents up to A0 size for you.

Where and when?

The Map Library is located on the first floor in Area 1A. There is a small work area for map users.

This is a staffed service, so you may want to check that the Map Librarian is available before making a special visit. Check the Library website and local signage for details of opening times.
