About this guide

The University of Arkansas Special Collections maintain a sizeable collection of maps relating to the history, culture, and development of Arkansas and neighboring regions as part of the Arkansas Collection within Special Collections. Additional copies of some maps may be found in the Map Collection (Government Documents Department) or in the Reference Department. Some maps of Arkansas are available online through the Libraries’ Web page as selected internet resources by subject – Maps – Arkansas Maps. The maps, dating back to the eighteenth century, record political boundaries, geologic surveys, and transportation routes. Others represent development of towns, roads in the counties, topography, and other natural and cultural features. The maps range from broad (statewide) to specific area (local) coverage. A map may be either an individual item, such as most historical maps, or may be part of a series.Please check the Special Collections Web page, or ask in Special Collections for the latest information and assistance with maps.
