Located inside the Archive Room, Vertical Files include newspaper clippings, pamphlets, newsletters, and other ephemera related to people, locations, and topics relevant to the Olympic Peninsula. Booklets and small books (100 pages or fewer) are also included in this collection.
Reference & Archival Maps
Many maps, road atlases, and travel guides can be borrowed. However, reference and archival maps can only be used at NOLS locations.
Reference maps—located in the map table outside of the Archive Room—include FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps, NOAA nautical charts, and USGS Survey maps, along with miscellaneous other maps.
Archival maps inside the Archive Room include historic USGS Survey maps showing changes in land formations, historic city street maps, Metsker’s maps, marine atlases, and many more.
