Most of the sheet map collection is stored in the blue map cabinets. However, the collection also includes: wall maps, slides, and aerial photos

Some of the noteworthy sheet map collections include Canadian National Topographic Series at various scales, Canada Land Inventory Series , Ontario Basic Mapping Series , National Atlas of Canada sheet maps, Geological Survey of Canada maps, Ontario Geological Series , Metropolitan Toronto Photomaps and ACMLA Historical Maps of Canada. Although our major emphasis is on Canada and the United States, we have also focused on building our Caribbean collection, which includes both current and historical maps of the islands.
