University of Texas Map Collections
The University of Texas Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection is great resources for many kinds of maps. The UT website is split into convenient categories for browsing. You can choose by location and type of map. Another great asset are the links to outside references; the list ranges from Rand McNally road maps to West Nile Virus maps to the NASA earth observatory. One thing that separates them from many other map resources is that they also group maps according to topical interest.
And just in case you need a refresher, here's a guide to map citations from Ohio Wesleyan University.
