Map Storage Cabinet used at Penn State

Map Collection File

“It isn’t any one benefit of the Ulrich Planfile, but rather all the advantages together that we appreciate.”
-Laura Probst, Head of Public Services
Penn State University Library

The topographical map collection at Penn State University’s Library, located in University Park, Pennsylvania is estimated to be among the fifteen largest university collections in the country. These maps are kept safe and made easily accessible to the public and student body through the use of a variety of Ulrich Planfiles.

The Planfile features that are especially important to the library’s staff and public users:

  • Easy access, easy to use
  • Reduced floor space
  • Fire and water resistance
  • Overall convenience
  • Lockable

Penn State Map Librarians trust Ulrich Planfiles to preserve important Maps that will support generations of Geospacial Education.
