Map Library Blog
This summer we've been processing a large gift of maps from Professor Emeritus John Hunter. These maps are primarily of Ghana and Sierra Leone, and include both detailed topographic maps and thematic maps illustrating disease eradication projects.
For a list of other recent acquisitions (those that have records in the library catalog), see http://magic.msu.edu/search/X?SEARCH=su%3Amaps&searchscope=17&l=&m=&Da=&Db=&SORT=D
We've had some major additions to the Map Library collection in the last few months. In March we added about 5,000 detailed topographic maps of the world, including Mexico (1:50,000), Canada (1:50,000), Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Colombia. The maps came with 26 map cabinets, which raised our cabinets to new heights! All maps may be retrieved safely and comfortably with our two rolling ladders.
