locate maps. Check under the Location box on our catalog for "UNLV
Maps" for items located in the map cabinets. You may also
limit your search specifically to the "UNLV Maps" location.
Please note: Since all maps in the UNLV Map Collection have not
yet been cataloged, the finding guides located inside of each
map cabinet may further assist you in locating maps.
