Veterans Day Cartographic Exhibits

Veterans Day Map Exhibits Available from Ball State University Libraries

Today is Veterans Day, and the Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) provides access to commemorative cartographic posters that can be used for special exhibits or classroom displays.  The GRMC created posters featuring maps and photographs depicting events of the major wars in which the United States has fought, and the posters are available from the Libraries’ Cardinal Scholar digital repository. 

The maps and images are from atlases and other cartographic resources in the GRMC and Atlas Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library.  Teachers, students, and other researchers can access the posters to be displayed digitally or printed off in large format.  (The GRMC offers large-format printing on two plotters with charges through the Bursar’s office).

Review all of the digital resources (posters, custom maps, lesson plans) available in Cardinal Scholar from the GRMC.  And the GRMC adds new resources every month, so check the list for updates.

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