Geography & Regional Studies

Description of Collection

The library collections contain materials covering geographic, cultural, historical, and other information for most areas of the world. There is a particular emphasis on the southeast U.S., Latin America, and Europe. For geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing, the library concentrates on the application of these technologies across many fields of study.
