Map collection

The map collection of Paderborn University Library comprises about 3.200 maps (incl. multiple copies).


The holdings of the map collection can be used as reference holdings under supervision in the information centre or in the local lending service. Lending or making available within the framework of interlibrary loan is generally excluded.

Maps taken out must be entered in the list available on site (room BI 0.101) and countersigned by a member of the library staff when they are returned.

An exception applies to lecturers in that they are entitled to borrow cards during regular office hours for the implementation or preparation of courses against deposit of their library card (including the card rack, if applicable).


The following overviews of the maps contained in the collection of the UB Paderborn, which are only partially listed in the catalogue, are available as PDF documents:
