They are accessible through a card file in the Manuscript Reading Room. The Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) is in the beginning stages of posting digital copies of historical maps on their website through the Tennessee Virtual Archives (TEVA). Among the collection is a 1907 historical map showing Davidson County civil districts and the plotted residences of families living within those districts. Other maps from 1795 and 1806 show early waterways and settlements. The Department of Transportation in Nashville also has a large collection of maps and atlases for the state.

The Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture site includes a collection of state maps showing major cities, rivers and roadways. Of special interest is a county map which shows a brief summary of each Tennessee county. These maps are published jointly by the Tennessee Historical Society and The University of Tennessee Press.
