Hispanic Heritage Month Map Exhibit at Ball State University Libraries

Mapping Hispanic Heritage: Exhibit at Ball State University Libraries

September 15 marked the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States. Seven Latin American countries declared their independence during the month of September, and Columbus Day also falls within this period of celebration.

A special map exhibit commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month is currently on display in the GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) on the second floor of Bracken Library, which coincides with a Hispanic Heritage book display in the lobby of Bracken Library. The exhibit features maps and images (click to enlarge above) from the Atlas of Hispanic-American History available from the Atlas Collection.

For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
