 Got a case of the Mondays?  Come clear the cobwebs and see some beautiful maps in Western History/Genealogy.

 Have you ever been amazed by the beauty of maps?  Noticed the unique typography, the detail in the illustrations, the intricacy of the compass rose?  WH/G is home to hundreds of maps.  There are loads of hidden gems, promises of far off lands, even sea creatures.  Come browse them at the 5th floor of the Central Library, or online!
