Foreign Sheet Maps

Foreign sheet maps are mostly topographic maps. Foreign sheet maps include maps of whole countries, road maps, and maps of individual cities.

Foreign sheet maps are arranged according to their Library of Congress Classification number. Some of these maps are cataloged and can be located through the STARS computers. Uncataloged foreign sheet maps have the first part of the call number (or "stem") written on them. A summary of the Library of Congress classification schedule for foreign maps is posted on top of the first maps case in the foreign sheet map section.
