Guide to call numbers for maps and atlases

Map cabinetsAll map call numbers begin with the letter G in the catalogue, but the G does not appear on maps and on map drawer labels. An atlas call number that includes "Fo" or "Oversize" is located on the oversize shelves.

The following call number ranges are used for maps and atlases, for different parts of the world.
