The Map and Government Information Library (MAGIL) acquires, organizes and provides access to cartographic and government information. It is located in the sub-basement of the Main Library.
The UGA Libraries serves as Georgia's regional depository for documents published by the Federal government as well as the official depository for documents published by the State of Georgia. Government information produced by select international organizations, including the United Nations, is also collected. Cartographic resources include maps, aerial photography and remote sensed imagery, atlases, digital spatial data, and reference materials, with a particular emphasis on the State of Georgia.

GIS Tutorials and Workshops
We have a number of GIS tutorials using QGIS, which is open source (and can run on Macs as well as Windows computers). The tutorials cover a variety of skills to help you create a map from start to finish.
Workshops are offered as part of the Fall and Spring into Research programs and occasionally as part of DigiLab data workshop series. Workshops can also be customized to support classroom projects.
