The Map and Government Information Library (MAGIL) opened its doors in the summer of 2012, making it the newest of the UGA Libraries. Created by the merger of the former Map Library and the University of Georgia Libraries' extensive government documents collections, the Map and Government Information Library is located in the sub-basement of the Main Library on UGA’s North Campus. Its mission is to provide bibliographic, physical and intellectual access to cartographic and government information in all formats. The UGA Libraries serves as Georgia’s regional Federal Depository Library as well as the official depository for documents published by the State of Georgia. Its government documents collections also include select international and United Nations documents.
Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies moved to its new home in the newly-built Special Collections Libraries Building in 2011, the space they formerly occupied in the Main Library was remodeled as the future home of the Map and Government Information Library.
MAGIL provides resources and services to UGA students, staff, and faculty as well as state, regional, national, and international researchers. For further information about the Map and Government Information Library and its collections and services, please visit our website: www.libs.uga.edu/magil.
