The Map Collection include maps of the local area and California communities. Various types of maps show different aspects and concerns which are important to the development and growth of a city or region. The Map Collection includes street maps, zoning maps, school districts, voting precincts, census tracts, bus routes, bicycle paths, and flood zones. Maps printed over a period of time show historical changes in city boundaries, street names, neighborhood development, park and recreation facilities, schools and city buildings, and sometimes names of buildings such as hospitals.
In the spirit of celebrations, Special Collections is also honoring the Centennial of the City of Davis. Let’s celebrate with the panel covers of some Davis maps available in the Map Collection.
The Map Collection room is located on the Lower Level of Shields Library. Doors open to the public Monday-Friday, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
