Nova Scotia Archives

Search Map Collection

The Nova Scotia Archives Library includes many published maps, charts and atlases of historical interest. A small partial inventory (1400 selected items) is now included in the online library catalogue; the descriptions can be accessed either from a general search, or via a separate search carried out on the Map Collection only, by using the Search Box below. All map items must be requested by Request Slips; items are retrieved during weekday open hours only (or by pre-booking).


A small virtual exhibit of Nova Scotia maps, presented chronologically, is available on this website. Researchers working onsite at the Nova Scotia Archives also have quick access via our public workstations, to a growing selection of over 1,000 digitized maps from the Collection.
