Journalism & New Media Resources @ UTSC

A guide to assist UTSC students in Journalism and New Media find resources needed to successfully complete their course work.

Map and Data Library

One of the best places to start your search for Map and GIS data is the U of T Map and Data Library.

The Map and Data Library has produced a useful PDF Guide to their collections which will help you to navigate their extensive collections.

Unlike book materials, maps cannot be shipped between libraries. There are extensive online map resources, but if you require a physical map that is in the MDL collection you'll need to visit the Map and Data Library on the 5th floor of the Robarts building on the St. George campus.  Once there, however, the MDL has a large format scanner, which you can use to make digital scans of any maps that you need to make use of, free of charge.

Library and Archives Canada

Library and Archives Canada also has an extensive collection of maps, many of which have been digitized.

Use the Archives Search Page and limit to Type of Material: Maps and cartographic material, and Online: Yes to search across over 10,800 digital map resources in the Library and Archives Canada collections.
