Library Trends 55 (2) Fall 2006: Geographic Information Systems and Libraries. Edited by Jaime Stoltenberg and Abraham Parrish.

In this first-ever issue of Library Trends dedicated to GIS and libraries, we present thirteen authors contributing ten profoundly informative articles that address a variety of current issues and trends in the field. These authors share their experience, expertise, and opinions regarding the most prominent concerns within the field of GIS librarianship today. In an effort to create a comprehensive issue that spans the most current and relevant topics, careful consideration was made in the selection of articles included in this issue.
