Government Documents: Maps, Posters, and Images

Kenyon College, a Federal Depository Library since 1873, holds a large collection of historical and current government documents which are freely provided to the public in a variety of formats.

Maps and Geographical Resources

Kenyon receives topographic maps from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). These maps are housed in horizontal cases on the first floor of the library, near the Chalmers Instruction Classroom. You'll find an assortment of maps of the United States, with special emphasis on the Midwestern states, as well as a collection of general and world maps. You may also wish to browse the collection of atlases on the second floor near the Reference Desk or the electronic resources below.

Note: Many federal departments and agencies produce their own maps. For maps on a particular topic (for example, population maps from the Census Bureau, environmental and climate maps from the EPA, etc.), try using the department/agency's website.

Posters, Photographs, and Images

Kenyon also has a collection of posters from various federal departments and agencies, including posters issued by the War Department. Some of the posters are cataloged and can be searched in CONSORT; all are housed with the map collection on the first floor.
