About the Library
Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences Library is a small, comfortable library tucked into the second floor of Hampton Hall of Civil Engineering. Our collections feature a map collection, United States Geological Survey publications, and print and electronic materials in the disciplines of geology, atmospheric sciences, and planetary sciences. The library also features small group study areas.
The EAPS Map Room containing 203,000 topographic maps, is located in a room separate from the main facility. The hours of the Map Room are: 8am - 5pm, Monday-Friday. The bulk of maps housed here are collected through the government documents depository program. Please note, the Map Room is closed evenings and weekends.
Instructors may request class lectures on library resources and research techniques to be presented by the librarian. Special assistance can be provided for specific class assingments if arrangements are made in advance. Demonstrations of on-line searching and use of indexes are available on an individual or group basis. For more information, please contact Megan Sapp Nelson.
