The Ball State Campus Maps Collection is the newest collection to be added to the Digital Media Repository. Access it here: http://libx.bsu.edu/collection.php?CISOROOT=/BSUCmpsMps
The collection contains maps of the Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana starting in 1929-2000. These maps are a valuable resource for those interested in the growth of the Ball State University campus over the last century. The maps are from the Geospatial Resources and Map Collection (GRMC) and Archives and Special Collections.
This collection uses Zoomify technology.

To quickly switch back and forth between the Thumbnail and the Grid View, use the Change View buttons in the center of the medium blue tool bar.
Thumbnail View, the default, displays a small representative picture and the title for each item. The Thumbnail View is good for simple browsing. Click "Grid View" to view more information about each item, such as subject, description, or date. The Grid View allows you to gather more information and easily assess relevance before viewing the full item record.
The Change View buttons are new customized enhancements to the DMR. You can still change the view option and other settings the old way, by going into "Preferences."
