OUR SHOPPING CART IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY!

So, if you want to place an order, call (800) GET ATLAS or 800-438-2852 and leave a clear message and phone number. We'll return your call as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, what follows is, we hope, an increasingly functional site!

    
Book & copy holders that aren't
a pain in the neck!

Librarians helped modify this book holder for use in library cataloguing.
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 keep your neck bent most of the time -- it is usually 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 providing a taller support for your book. All Atlas models provide a wide range of height adjustability. Angle adjustability is also important for your comfort, and all Atlases provide it. 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.
