- Maps for classes may be put on reserve.
- Many current USGS maps are available online and can be printed for instructors needing physical copies. Contact Digital Initiatives with printing requests.
- Maps on the “give away” tables in the Science and Engineering Library are outdated titles that were not cataloged, have received very little use, are not unique and and would be discarded regardless of the Map Room closure.
