Title: Implementing Geographic Information Systems in the public library arena
Author(s): Jue, Dean K.
Subject(s): Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Public libraries
Abstract: The rate of introduction of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) into public libraries is accelerating. This study investigates the experiences of all types of libraries that have either successfully or unsuccessfully introduced GIS into a library environment. From librarians' experiences, it is apparent that the most important consideration for successful GIS introduction into a library is adequate staffing and staff training. From this and other information collected during this study, a decision flowchart was developed to help public librarians evaluate the type of GIS services that should be provided in any given library environment. The Public Library Users Geographic Information System (PLUS+GIS) research project, based in Florida, is a project focused on developing methodologies to assist public libraries in introducing GIS to their patrons.
