Maps in the News: Washington, D.C., Metro Maps Available in Ball State University Libraries

The GIS Research and Map Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library includes an extensive collection of maps of the Washington, D.C. area. Many of the tourist and travel maps available for circulation from the GRMC ready-reference area feature inset maps of the Metro transit system.

The map of the Metro system shown above is from National Geographic’s Destination Map series of Washington, D.C. ADC’s Visitor’s map of Washington, D.C. includes a detailed downtown Washington map and a map of the Metro rail system. Maps published by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are also included in the GRMC collection. The GRMC also has maps of the Baltimore area and metro system.

Maps from the GRMC circulate for two weeks or longer. Please visit the GRMC Monday through Friday from 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. throughout the summer months. For more information, please contact the staff of the GRMC at 765/285-1097.
