Maps Collections

Searching the online catalogue

The first step in accessing maps from the Library collection, is to search the online catalogue.

When you've found a map, you can access items from the map collection in two ways:  

  1. Search the online catalogue

    • ​​You can view thousands of digitised sheet maps from anywhere, anytime.
  2. Visit the Library

    • If you're in the Library, please speak to a staff member to discuss your request and complete a request slip.
    • If you want to request material before you visit the Library, complete the Access to Special Collections Request form. 

If you can't find the map you're looking for, our Librarians are here to help.

Online Maps

By selecting 'Full text online' or 'Published Digital', you can reduce your search results to only display maps that have an online copy.

  • Full text online - All maps that are available online, including other locations such as Trove.
  • Published Digital - These are digitised copies, taken from physical maps in the Library's collection.
