Guide to Call Numbers for Maps and Atlases

All 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 table describes the call number ranges being used for maps and atlases, for different parts of the world.
