An atlas is a book of maps and geographic information.

Atlases are located on the second floor near the reference desk and beside the maps.

On the left side are Reference Atlases organized by Library of Congress call numbers (LC call number).

Atlases are often large books, although they can be small too. To accommodate their unusual sizes atlases are shelved in these cabinets with wide shelves. Many of the shelves will pull out like drawers.

On the right side are Gov Doc Atlases, or atlases published by the federal government. These atlases are organized by SuDoc number. To learn more about SuDocs visit our Guide to Shelving by SuDoc Numbers.

Atlases can be on a wide variety of topics.

Georgia atlases are located on the other end of the cabinets. Georgia atlases are published by the state of Georgia and organized by GA documents number, similar to SuDoc number but for GA government documents.

If you need help locating an atlas please ask at the reference desk.
