- Our Edinburgh reading rooms will reopen for limited service on Tuesday 27 April. See our reopening page for more information.
Around two million maps, atlases, gazetteers, and cartographic reference works and periodicals are available for consultation in the Maps Reading Room. About two thirds of the maps collection relates to the British Isles, with one third covering the rest of the world.
The Maps Reading Room is located in the Library's Causewayside Building, 33 Salisbury Place, Edinburgh, EH9 ISL.
