Hi all,

I know this has been asked here before, but here goes again.

I was contacted by a colleague at another institution looking for tactile maps of the world. I suggested American Printing House for the Blind and American Foundation for the Blind. However, it seems like I remember somebody giving another resource for such maps. Any ideas?
