The Map Library is located on the first floor of the Scott Library. As you enter the Scott Library, turn right, go past the escalator, and the Map Library is straight ahead.

Help with general informational queries including map and atlas retrieval is offered during all hours of opening from frontline staff in the Map Library.

Research assistance with maps, geospatial data and GIS is available during the hours listed below. Due to the complex and visual nature of maps and geospatial data, patrons are encouraged to visit the Map Library during the drop-in hours, so that questions can be discussed in person.

All York University libraries are currently CLOSED. See below for help options.


For questions regarding the maps, atlases, or geospatial data collections, please email


Maps, data and GIS research consultation sessions can be booked with the our librarians. Please email to book an appointment.
