How to Choose Resources: Atlas

Where in the world?

 

Atlas

An atlas helps you find where places are located.

 

  • Begin by using the index in the back of a print Atlas.
  • The index will list a page number and map coordinates. Please write down all the information.
  • Turn to the correct page and use the map coordinates to find the location you're looking for.
  • Atlases use symbols to define capital cities, rivers, and mountains.
