As GIS has steadily grown from a niche to a mainstream tool, libraries have begun to pay attention. Their clientele are starting to ask where to find geospatial data and how to use it.
As a first step in addressing this trend, the UW-Madison’s School of Library and Information Studies is offering a workshop on April 7 titled “Introduction to GIS on the Web: Tools for Librarians.” AJ Wortley and I from the SCO will join Jaime Martindale from the Robinson Map Library and Jerry Sullivan from the Wis. Dept. of Administration as instructors. For details, visit the workshop web page (link below.)
