Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC)

The Map and Geographic Information Center

The Map and Geographic Information Center (a.k.a. The Map Room) is the largest collection of maps and other cartographic information, such as atlases, gazetteers and place name guides,in the state of New Mexico. As part of the Federal Depository Library Program it houses maps from the United States Geological Survey, The National Forest Service, the National Park Service, the Central Intelligence Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Army Corps of Engineers. Other maps in the collection come from commercial map firms or from donated maps. Historic maps are an important part of our collection, including the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps of New Mexico, historic road maps of New Mexico, and historic maps of the southwest and the Navajo Nation. ArcGIS is available in our computer area and we have full service scanning and printing available.

The Map Room is on the second lower level of Centennial Science and Engineering Library.
