Map & Geographic Information Center

The University of Connecticut Library’s MAGIC (Map and Geographic Information Center), collaborates with agencies, organizations, and centers to provide the public with access to maps, atlases, gazetteers, aerial photographs, and geospatial data pertaining to the state of Connecticut, New England and the world. MAGIC digitizes public-domain and copyright free maps and resources in order to enable researchers to have digital access to these resources.

MAGIC’s is focused on “Digitizing the Past to Empower 21st Century Research” as we work to develop an interdisciplinary collection of geospatial resources and maps which focus on the state of Connecticut. The Connecticut State Data Center (CTSDC), a collaboration between the Office of Policy and Management (OPM), the UConn Department of Geography, and the UConn Library, joined MAGIC in October 2010. The Connecticut State Data Center is part of the nationwide State Data Center network of the U.S. Census Bureau and provides assistance and support with census datasets with a focus on Connecticut.

MAGIC and Connecticut State Data Center staff are available Monday – Friday by Appointment Only.  To make an appointment email us at magic@uconn.edu to setup a time to discuss your data, mapping, and digital scholarship project and research needs.
