Dominic LiMandri: Earth Sciences and Maps Library

April 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

The Earth Sciences and Map Library is located in 50 McCone Hall on the ground level and is open 9 a.m.– 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday from 9 a.m.– 5 p.m. and closed on the weekends. The library’s resources include over 80,000 air photos, 140,000+ print volumes, over 1,000 journal subscriptions,  500,000+ maps and aerial photographs, and two Geographic Information Systems (GIS) stations, all of which is open to the public. Although the library is naturally used mostly by geography and earth sciences majors,  the stunning amount of resources provided draw in students from all different majors and even mapping enthusiasts not affiliated with the University of California. Even if maps do not intrigue you as much as they do me, I would highly recommend spending an afternoon exploring the rest of the library’s resources, at the very least to catch up on the latest issue of National Geographic. But if you can’t quite sacrifice an entire afternoon, I would strongly suggest utilizing the library’s very helpful website or even OskiCat to navigate the overwhelming amount of resources. Check out the website and add some geography to your day:
