Standard Atlas holding 25 lbs. of weights, 5 inches above the desk top (and it could go higher!). The Standard Atlas is a real work horse—the document holder of choice for all around versatility and unparalleled strength.

Atlas for Library Cataloging (Atlas-LC) is more than a dictionary stand: here, it holds a 4-inch thick encyclopedia well above the desk top. The binding is still supported on the 4-inch deep shelf.

Effective book stands and copy stands should:

   Hold your document (whether a dictionary or a single piece of paper) at the height that prevents you from bending your neck as you read, because bending your neck forward, backward or sideways for long periods of time generally results in neck and shoulder pain, fatigue, and inefficiency.
     Simply angling a document at desk level won't suffice if you still have to bend your neck to see the bottom of the page -- it is necessary to raise the entire document so that your head movements are close to what they would be if you were walking down the street. Height adjustable for an Atlas means raising the height of the whole document, not just increasing the viewing angle so that the document top is higher. All Atlas models provide a wide range of height adjustability. Angle adjustability, also important for your comfort, is designed into all Atlases. For more details, see Ergonomic Guidelines.

   Keep the pages of your book, or the sheets of your copy, open at the page you want, for hands-free reading or working. Fixed page restraints accommodate only certain sizes of documents. The page stoppers which come with all Atlases give you the flexibility to restrain pages in the way that is most convenient for you (as in the Standard Atlas photo above). Line guides also keep your place, even with thick books and documents.

   Provide easy, quick adjustments for working with documents of different sizes and weights. Atlas adjustments can be made in seconds, and are not strength-dependent.

   Be durable and strong. Because of their strength and durability, these document holders are named for Atlas, the Greek god who held up the world.
