The Map and Government Information Library staff provides assistance in both the use of research tools and guides and in locating cartographic materials and government information on-site, as well as by phone and email, or through our Research Request Form. If in-depth research is required and patrons are not able to perform that work on-site, the UGA Libraries maintains a list of Independent Researchers for Hire who are willing to conduct research for a fee. 

Classes and Tours

The Map and Government Information Library staff is happy to conduct tours of our facility for classes, small groups, and individuals. In order to ensure availability, classes and groups are asked to schedule tours with a staff member at least a week in advance. Please contact us for further information.


Public computers are available to Map and Government Information Library patrons for research purposes. A UGA MyID is required to use the computers; non-affiliated patrons will need to register at the Security Desk on the first floor of the Main Library.
