educational system maps

I chose the educational system map as the one I think it's important for libraries to know. The presence of a university or college in a particular area would likely influence the local library holdings, and also help them to better understand their patron population. Futhermore, the local library could be called upon to offer materials that are lacking in public and private school libraries, or even act as a school library if the local school doesn't have one.

I think you have a very good point in wanting to know the population and education. I think there are just too many maps for one to be better or best. It is a cool book though.

I agree with Todd that it's very hard to pick just one. The educational system maps do seems to correspond, though, to the "mental map" that many people in educational settings (e.g. us)have in their head for Wisconsin.
