Berkeley Map Library

Earth Sciences & Map Library-University of California, Berkeley

There is not a chart or map that cannot be found there, I think. A handful of world sailors tell me they go here to research their travels prior to planning/obtaining their paper nav charts. For what it is worth.

The Library is equipped with two self-service photocopy machines, one of which is a photocopier/printer. The photocopier/printer is networked to the public workstations and can make black-and-white and color copies, up to 11 x 17 inches. Photocopy services are also provided by the Library Photocopy Services, located in 321 Moffitt Library, 238 Boalt Hall, and 2101 Valley Life Sciences Building. Oversize copies, up to 36 inches by any length, may be obtained at various commercial services located just off-campus.

What a cool source. Does anyone worry about the copyright of the charts? Have you been there?

One of our good friends, a Club Nautique instructor and cruiser of 20 years all about the Pacific, turned us on to it. Apparently no problems making copies of whatever they have for personal use, and tons of stuff to reference to decide what you actually want to buy. All govt charts and products are non-copyrighted.

As a school teacher, he can go free. As a general public, he says you have to join as a member --- but the fee is pretty reasonable. We've only been on a short visit as a guest --- I've not gone to research full time, but between him and another delivery skipper I know who also suggested it, we are going to pursue time there more diligently as we hit the winter months and final planning phases for our journeying next year.

Sounds great I could use some charts of Mexico West Coast.

I blame my son, it's all his fault!

Can students get access to this for free? Can they bring guests? One of our interns is a UCB student, and I wonder if she can get me in... Hmmmmm....
