Access & Borrowing

Map Access
Access to the Map Collection and staff assistance for this collection are now available by appointment only. Please email

Circulation Policy
Access to the collection is available to Smith and Five College patrons and the public. 

Maps circulate only to patrons with a valid Smith ID. The Libraries’ borrowing policies for books apply to maps as well. Maps which are brittle or are marked as “Library Use Only” do not circulate. Maps are expected to be returned in the same condition in which they went out. Please do not fold the maps. Replacement fees will be billed to a patron who returns a map in damaged condition.
