The Official Records (OR) and the OR Atlas are cornerstones of Civil War research. There are multiple sources emerging that are putting these sources online for your use. I am linking Ohio State University's eOnline project.

Here is a link to the OR Atlas: The maps are arranged by plate, just like the printed book form. If you click on an image (each image is a plate) you will notice a link below it that allows you to download the plates! GREAT STUFF!

This is the link to the ORs: Notice the different links below the picture of the book. You can search by volume OR do a "search" across the entire collection!
