The Library of Congress Map Collections is organized according to seven major categories. A map or collection of maps which portrays a subject or multiple subjects is found under the category which includes the main subject. For example, maps of the national parks are found in Conservation and Environment; a map of the Lewis and Clark expedition is in Discovery and Exploration; maps used by the American Colonization Society during the settlement of Liberia are in Immigration and Settlement; and when they become available, Civil War maps will be in Military Battles and Campaigns and railroad maps will be in Transportation and Communication. In general, a map will be assigned to only one category, unless an item is part of more than one core collection.
