32nd Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1995). Edited by Linda C. Smith and Myke Gluck.

The 32nd Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in April 1995, addressed the theme of "GIS and Libraries: Patrons, Maps, and Spatial Information." The papers from this conference cover a wide range of topics within the sphere of GIS and libraries.
