1986 Map of MSU Libraries
October 29, 2015 - 6:46:00 pm (America/Detroit)
Blog: Map Library   Categories: Uncategorized

In 1986 MSU cartography student Brenda Mathenia made this map of campus that highlights the 14 library locations and their collections. The back summarizes the collections and services of the libraries at that time. Over the intervening 29 years we've changed drastically both in size and composition. Our collections are larger and our locations are fewer. Our computing and study spaces are vastly enhanced and modernized. One thing hasn't changed one iota though, and that is expressed in the last sentence: "The MSU Libraries are constantly growing and changing, responding to the...

Myths of the North Pacific
July 23, 2015 - 12:14:00 pm (America/Detroit)
Blog: Map Library   Categories: Uncategorized

For hundreds of years European nations yearned to discover a water route over or through the Americas to reach the Pacific and Asia. In 1775 the unofficial contest became more real when Great Britain offered a £20,000 prize (about £2.2 million today) mainly to beat the Spanish to the discovery.


This map attempts to mark out reports from several expeditions. Two, however, were likely fictitious or at least grossly exaggerated, those of Juan de Fuca and “l’Amiral” De Fonte. The Spanish government archives have no records of such voyages (and in De Fonte’s case, no such person)....
