Map Library and Reading Room SharePoint

NB: This is UCL Department of Geography SharePoint site only. If you are outside of the Department and require access, please contact Nick Mann

The collection is divided into two broad areas, the book collection located in the Departmental Reading Room (LG16) and the Map Collection located in the Anne Oxenham Map Room (LG13).

The Oxenham Room has maps that cover most of the world’s area including topographic and thematic maps. We also have a wide selection of atlases and flat sheets.

The Departmental Reading Room has a collection of core ‘reference only’ texts to support the courses taught in the Geography Department as well as a number of special collections.

The Department has developed the Oxenham Room to provide access to our online teaching as a digital learning resource. Students can use the twenty-three dedicated PCs to access online resources via moodle; in addition to reading lists and other information, there are exercises to help students learn and to assess their understanding of important elements of the courses they are studying.

The collection is primarily for the use of the Department of Geography and persons within University College London. Visitors from other colleges are however welcome to use the facilities. Please telephone or email to make an appointment.

Wheelchair access can be arranged. Please telephone Bedford Way Security on extension 020 7679 5513 or the Learning Resources Coordinator on 020 7679 5537.

Undergraduate Dissertations are available through the departmental SharePoint site (for Geography students only - requires your @ucl login).
