New Travel Materials Available in Ball State University Libraries

New Travel Materials in the GIS Research and Map Collection

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) has added new travel materials just in time for the summer.

For local travel information the 2011 Indiana Travel Guide and Indiana Recreation Guide are available for circulation. Golfers can use the Indiana Golf and Travel Guide for information about courses around the state, and the 2011 Indiana Festival Guide details hundreds of festivals. A new map of the Knobstone Trail, Indiana’s longest footpath, is also now available in the GRMC as well as a new set of state park maps including the Dunes, Harmonie, and Patoka Lake.

Travelers to the nation’s capital can now find new maps of several attractions. The GRMC has new maps available of the Smithsonian complex, the National Cathedral, and parking maps for Reagan National Airport. A new map of nearby Monticello is also available for circulation.

Travelers to Paris and New York will also find new maps in the GRMC. Maps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Louvre’ and the Estate of Versailles are now available for circulation.

Many of these maps were gifts from Jacqueline Luzar Nelson and Justine Payne, Ball State University alumnae.

Maps from the GRMC circulate for two weeks or longer. For more information, please visit the GRMC during summer hours from 7:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
