The maps in this collection come from many sources, most of which came from the library circulating collection. In 1980, Special Collections became an official department at Georgia College, and the maps were moved to the archive.
The maps in the collection are held in oversize drawers. Georgia-based maps are primarily arranged by county or location. Maps outside of Georgia are arranged by geographical location. The identifier numbers for each map can be found under the "General Note" sections. There are 16 drawers in this collection.
