WWU MAP Collection Give -Away April 17th & 18th

Western Libraries is consolidating the Map Collection
and will be giving away surplus maps!

The giveaway will be held at the Commissary at
781 25Th St
on April 17 and April 18 from 12 to 4.

These maps were received through depository or similar agreements and therefore Western cannot sell them, but they are free for the taking.  They have already been offered to other libraries. The maps are mostly of the eastern United States, or other countries. They include topographic, nautical and aeronautical maps, among many

 Members of the public who expect to spend more than fifteen minutes looking at the maps need to purchase a parking permit at Parking Services in the Campus Services Facility at 2001 Bill McDonald Parkway.  For more information contact Rob Lopresti at 360-650-3272  or mapcollection@wwu.edu.

   The WWU Libraries permanent Map Collection is
   located in Wilson Library 170 and is open to the
   public from 11 to 2, Tuesday through Friday. 
   It contains more than 100,000 maps with an
   emphasis on the Pacific Northwest.
