Abstract
Creating a bibliographic description for a contemporary atlas is perhaps more easily understood if one first gives consideration to what an atlas is. It is important to know that this article deals with cartographic atlases as opposed to atlases that focus on, e.g., the anatomy of human or other bodies, or of other types such as those about minerals. Of primary consideration is that cartographic atlases are first and foremost a means of displaying graphic information about the Earth's or other celestial body's surface and/or subsurface, with the physical nature of the item following in relevance when describing the item in hand. Following an overview of what defines an atlas this paper will serve to give the cataloger who has little or no experience with this format of cartographic information guidelines towards which fields are critical to its proper description and, therefore, its accuracy of retrieval.
