World Wildlife Map Available in Ball State University Libraries

Featured Map: New Wildlife Map in the Geospatial Resources & Map Collection

The Geospatial Resources & Map Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library has a new world wildlife map available for research and learning. “The World of Wild Animals” is a large (30” x 38”) laminated map depicting the world habitats of 197 wild animals. This colorful map features drawings of some of the animals and lists names at the bottom. The map would be an excellent visual aid for a speech on wildlife conservation or for elementary education students teaching a lesson on the animals of the world. The map is available for circulation for two week or longer.

Atlas of World Wildlife is also available in the University Libraries General Collection, and the Educational Resources Collection has two atlases describing animals of the world—Rand McNally Children’s Atlas of World Wildlife and Atlas of Wildlife.

For more information about these resources, please contact the GRMC Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00 at 765/285-1097.
