      Maps can serve several important functions in academic research:

      1) They depict the geography of countries and regions that you're studying, which can add a helpful dimension to your analysis

      2) They help portray historical events that have a geographic dimension, such as military battles, the paths of explorers, and the expansion of empires

      3) Thematic maps can be utilized to help visualize geographic variations in social, economic, and political variables

      4) Scanned or online map images can be used as illustrations in presentations or papers

      Use this guide to help you find maps in Geisel Library's collection and on the Internet.
