July Map of the Month in University Libraries

July 2008 GRMC “Map of the Month” Is Disastrous

The “Map of the Month” in the Ball State University Libraries Geospatial Resources & Map Collection is a map showing great disasters that have occurred in North America—mostly in the summer. The map, Natural Hazards of North America, was produced as a supplement for National Geographic magazine in July of 1998. This map features historic hailstorms, droughts, tornadoes, and hurricanes, wildfires, and landslides.

Maps from the GRMC may be borrowed for two weeks or longer. The GRMC maintains multiple copies of National Geographic maps, so both sides of these maps can be displayed during class presentations or exhibits.

Contact the GRMC Monday through Friday from 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. for more information about this map or any other resources.
