Most maps may be checked out of the library for the same circulation period as books.
As of Fall 2013, the Map Cases are located on the 5th floor of Lied Library (northwest corner). Our large flat maps are located in these cases, and are called UNLV Maps in the online catalog. Folded maps are in the Government Publications stacks, and are called UNLV Gov Pubs.
The Lied Library map collection contains a wide variety of maps, including maps accompanying environmental impact statements for federal and state land, U.S. Geological Survey, miscellaneous maps treated as government publications, and CD-ROMs containing maps that have been scanned or loaded as datafiles.
Pre-1976 Federal publications must be accessed using a print index. The Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications (Call Number: GP 3.8:) is located in the Government Publications stacks.
Check under the Location box on our catalog for the following: UNLV Gov Pubs, UNLV Gov Pubs Ref, UNLV Gov Pubs Microforms, or UNLV Gov Pubs CD-ROM.
Most of the U.S. and Nevada publications may be checked out at the circulation desk. Reference resources must be used in the library. If the publication is microfilm or -fiche, you may read it in the library or use the microform scanners to make copies.
· Federal Publications: As a selective federal depository, Lied Library collects approximately 70% of the publications distributed by the Federal Depository Library Program. These have been selected to meet the needs of the UNLV and Las Vegas communities. The Library receives these publications free of charge and agrees to provide free public access to them.
Access to the government publications collection is open and free to UNLV students, faculty, and staff, as well as the general public.
