Maps of Ethiopia, Kenya, Reunion Island Available from Ball State University Libraries

Places in the News:  Africa—Ethiopia, Kenya, Reunion Island

Places in the news this week have centered on the continent of Africa:  President Obama was the first sitting President to visit Ethiopia and Kenya.  And a large piece of what appears to be a Boeing 777 aircraft appeared on Reunion Island, a French island located in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar.

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) includes over 140,000 maps and other cartographic resources of locations all over the world.  The GRMC also offers map posters (Kenya above, click to enlarge) available from Cardinal Scholar for use in classroom or other educational exhibits.  Maps from the GRMC can be circulated for two weeks or longer.

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