Title: Introduction to Geographic information systems and libraries: patrons, maps, and spatial information : [papers presented at the 1995 Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, April 10-12, 1995]
Author(s): Smith, Linda C.; Gluck, Myke
Subject(s): Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Abstract: Electronic technologies, including geographic information systems (GIS), are creating new ways of meeting the needs of library users for spatial and cartographic information. The 32nd Annual Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing, held at the Beckman Institute on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) on 2-4 April 1995, addressed the theme of "GIS and Libraries: Patrons, Maps, and Spatial Information." Current interest in this topic is evident in the publication of several special issues of journals shortly after the clinic took place. "Making GIS a Part of Library Service" (Lutz, 1995), "Geographic Information Systems (GISs) and Academic Libraries" (Hernon, 1995), and "Global Change and the Role of Libraries" (Rand, 1995) can be consulted for papers that complement and supplement the conference papers compiled in this volume. In particular, Longstreth (1995) identifies important information sources on GIS in his discussion of GIS collection development, staffing, and training.
