Using Maps in Research at the Indiana State Library

A big research project for school, work or personal life requires that one use all available resources. The more varied information collected from differing sources creates a richer picture of a research topic. The Indiana State Library is offering a seminar Using Maps in Your Research in order to help the Indianapolis community delve deeper into various topics. This Indianapolis event is on Wednesday, March 24 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am, and is FREE to all Indianapolis people.

Maps can be a very useful tool in research. Geographic locations often contribute in important ways to historic events. With the right background information, a map can serve as a picture of how, where and why certain events occur. Monique Howell, an Indiana Collection Librarian at the Indiana State Library will lead the session Using Maps in Your Research.

In Using Maps in Your Research, Howell will touch on various kinds of maps available for use at the Indiana State Library including digital maps, microfilmed maps, sanborn, topographical, transportation and more. She will not only share how to read these maps, but innovative ways to have maps illuminate your research.
