Maps for Hiking @thelibrary

Do you need a detailed map for a hiking trip? The library has hundreds of recent and historic maps for all 50 states, including Idaho. These range from USGS topographic maps (1:24,000-scale) to commercially-produced maps of state parks and hiking areas.

Maps are located on the first floor of the library. All cartographic materials can be photocopied or checked out for two weeks. For more information about the Library's map collection, go to: http://library.boisestate.edu/Maps/ .
