About the Riley Library map collection


The NNU Library has USGS topographical and miscellaneous maps. The library's collection generally focuses on Idaho and the history of the West. However, the library has a broad collection of maps from the rest of the world as well. Here are some example types of maps that you can find in our collection:

  • Topographic maps for Idaho, Oregon, and Nevada
  • Road maps of foreign countries;
  • Geologic & hydrologic maps 
  • Maps are found on the main floor of the library near the Reference collection

There is a large map case outside the Doceo Center that contains topographic maps of Idaho. These maps may be checked out of the library for one week. For assistance, talk to the Research Help Desk or Prof. LaRita Schandorff, the Reference Librarian
