The Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Georgia Libraries maintains a collection of more than 1,000 historic maps spanning nearly 500 years, from the sixteenth century through the early twentieth century. Although not limited to a single geographic subject, the collection heavily emphasizes Georgia as colony and state, along with its surrounding region.
The Hargrett maps database serves as a finding aid for the majority of Hargrett's map holdings and provides digital versions of most maps. Not currently included in the database are maps from the Confederate Imprints collection and the County Maps collection. For information on these, please contact the Hargrett Library.
For more modern map holdings, visit the UGA Libraries' Map & Government Information Library.
