MOUNTAINS OF MAPS: Google Maps doesn’t have all the answers. The Thomas R. Smith Map Collection in KU Libraries has multiple maps that can help just about anyone find their way. The collection’s site, http://www.lib.ku.edu/mapscoll/, has information on the collection, and how to find, maps, atlases, aerial photographs and spatial data. The site can also help answer questions about borrowing maps and selecting maps and photos from the collection and has links to Kansas-specific maps and those of the wider world. The collection also includes maps for visually impaired as well as others for children and schools.
