Sycamore Library Collections
The Sycamore Library has a modest but diverse collection of maps and posters produced by U.S. federal and Texas state government agencies as well as by commercial publishers such as National Geographic. Map holdings include geologic, topographic, and historic county plat maps of Texas; thematic maps showing features such as climate, population density, and industrial activity; WWII-era news maps; and literary maps depicting locations and journeys in classic fiction. We even have maps and atlases of other planets in our solar system, and star charts that map the entire known universe. Posters include World War I and II propaganda as well as educational and promotional materials from NASA, the U.S. Defense Department, and many other government agencies.
