1995: Geographic information systems and libraries: patrons, maps, and spatial information
32nd Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing (1995). Edited by Linda C. Smith and Myke Gluck.
Electronic technologies, including geographic information systems (GIS), are creating new ways of meeting the needs of library users of spatial and cartographic information. 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.

The St. Louis Public Library's Electronic Atlas: A successful GIS application in the public library environment (Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1996)In 1974, the U.S. Census Bureau published a collection of thematic maps from the 1970 census. The maps found a wide audience during the decade. However, the bureau did not produce a companion set from either the 1 980 ...

Digital library (DL) projects are beginning to create very large-scale repositories of digital information on a wide range of topics. As with traditional print libraries, this information can be indexed and retrieved in ...
This discussion deals with using traditional library cataloging methods- e.g., Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR), USMARC to catalog planetospatial data in digital form and the problem areas that have come to light.
