Integrating geographic information systems into library services: a guide for academic libraries
Information Science Pub.,
With the onslaught of emergent technology in academia, libraries are privy to many innovative techniques to recognize and classify geospatial data—above and beyond the traditional map librarianship. As librarians become more involved in the development and provision of GIS services and resources, they encounter both problems and solutions. Integrating Geographic Information Systems into Library Services: A Guide for Academic Libraries integrates traditional map librarianship and contemporary issues in digital librarianship within a framework of a global embedded information infrastructure, addressing technical, legal, and institutional factors such as collection development, reference and research services, and cataloging/metadata, as well as issues in accessibility and standards.
