Visitors to the GCMC from China
Visitors from Around the World
The Geospatial Center & Map Collection hosted a group visiting Ball State University from Deyang, China on September 27. The group of city government workers will be visiting Ball State for two months to experience the culture and participate in managerial training through an exchange program.
The visitors were thrilled to see so many maps of their hometown Deyang and the Sichuan Province included in the Map Collection here at Bracken Library. Many of the maps and atlases from the Collection were produced in Chinese. The Collection also includes topographic maps that show the specific terrain around the area of Deyang.
Ming-Ming Kuo, Collection Development Librarian, sponsored the tour of the University Libraries through the Office of Organizational Resources and the Center for International Programs.
