For current research questions, the SIS Maps acquires topographic map series as well as thematic maps and atlases that are difficult to obtain, e.g. on history, epidemiology, history of language development or human settlement. If you are interested in geoscientific map material please contact the FID GEO at the Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen. Depending on availability, map material is acquired either in analogue or digital format.
An overview of already acquired topographic map series is available at the Topo-Liste database. Search possibilities regarding other cartographic materials are summarized on the Outline of search possibilities of the Map Department. Applicants can request the acquisition of map material which is not part of the Map Department’s holdings. This can be done by completing the respective form.
