Maps and Atlases


The State Library map collection ranges from the 17th century to the 21st century and is located on Level 4 of the library. This collection includes street maps of New Jersey cities and counties, Sanborn insurance maps, historical maps and atlases of New Jersey and official state publication maps. The Sanborn maps are available on microfilm and are based on the collection in the Library of Congress. There is an index available in the microfilm room.

Collection Policy

This is a non-circulating collection. Generally the printed maps and atlases are not available for photocopying, either because the maps are large or they have been preserved. You are welcome to bring your own camera and equipment in order to take photographs.
