We have a complete collection of Ordnance Survey maps running from no.1 - no.204. You can find these maps on SAULCAT, our Library catalogue.
You can consult these maps on a reference only basis, this means you can view the maps within the Library. To request a map that has the loan type 'Reference Only', please email our Collections team to arrange a time. We may need a day or so advance notice to organise the maps for you.
Older maps and those within manuscript collections are held in Special Collections. Although some manuscript maps appear on the online archive catalogue, many are uncatalogued, so please contact Special Collections for information about specific items.
There is also a paper catalogue for our map collection which can be found in the Reference area on Level 2 of the Main Library:
