Hispanic Heritage Month Map Exhibit at Ball State University Libraries

Hispanic-American Cartographic Resources Exhibit at Bracken Library

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) is commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) with a special map exhibit.  The exhibit includes maps, charts, and photographs from The Atlas of Hispanic-American History from the Atlas Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library.  Included are maps of the attack on the Alamo, the California mission system, New Spain, and styles of Latin music.  Charts and photographs also describe Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers Movement.

The exhibit is posted in the front window of the GRMC on the second floor of Bracken Library through October 15.  The Atlas of Hispanic-American History is available for circulation from the Atlas Collection.

A copy of the exhibit poster is available in the University Libraries’ Cardinal Scholar institutional repository and may be used for educational displays and research.

For more information about any cartographic resources, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
