Anonymous maps from magazines and newspapers are usually entered under title. The periodical and its publisher, and even the author of the article in which a map appeared may have had little to do with the actual creation of the map.;

Check authority record for newspapers and magazines carefully. Authorities for the name of the periodicals are frequently established in name authority file as uniform titles. Use the name of the publishing company and not the name of the newspapers as an author. If the publisher is identical with the name of the publication qualify it with (Firm). Reference source may have to be consulted to ascertain the publisher.
