About the collection

The Monash University Library collection includes an extensive collection of maps, charts, atlases, gazetteers as well as books related to spatial information.

The Map collection is located in the Hargrave-Andrew Library on the Clayton campus, and contains maps from around the world with an emphasis on geological and topographical maps of Australia, and in particular, Victoria. There are also maps and charts of the oceans. Tourist maps covering some areas of Australia and other parts of the world form a minor part of the collection. Please refer to the Inventory section of this guide for full details of the print map collection.  

This guide provides information about key map and spatial data resources in the Library collection (print and online), as well as freely accessible maps and spatial data sources online. 


The Map Collection is open to the public during library hours. A quiet study area is available with a large table for easy use of sheet maps. A light / tracing table is also available for drawing. Photocopiers are located in close proximity. Note: Large format scanning is not available in the Library.
