Gazetteers are listings of geographical names; they may include just cities and towns, or all sorts of geographic features and they can vary in the type and amount of information they provide: some include only the type of feature and its location while others give lengthy descriptions and histories of a place.

Gazetteers of the British Isles (and a few world gazetteers) are on the open shelves; gazetteers for other countries are available on request.
