A Range of Resources ...

Yale's collections of maps and field guides are large and diverse. This guide is for geologists and students of geology who want a fast, easy gateway for accessing these resources. It includes digital and print field guide series, where to go for up-to-date geospatial data to easily generate maps of New England geology, and locations on campus where you can find maps to support your inquiry.
