Introduction to GIS for Librarians workshop

Filed under: GIS in Libraries — geoLibro @ 3:27 pm

A colleague at Purdue’s  M.G. Mellon Library of Chemistry alerted me to a workshop hosted by the Indiana State Library called "Introduction to GIS for Librarians," August 17 from 1:30 to 4:00 pm in the History Reference Room (State Library of Indiana, downtown Indianapolis). From a forwarded email announcement:

"Geographic Information Systems is a powerfull tool that can be used by anyone. But what exactly is it, and what advantages can it provide librarians?…Jim Sparks of Paul I. Cripe, the Indianapolis architecture and engineering firm, will guide participants through the basics. Tailored for librarians, this seminar can open up a world of possibilities for anyone working with maps or spatial data."

How about that? It’s a little odd that it’s being taught by an architect, but perhaps in the future there will be similar sessions taught by a GIS Librarian. Indiana is swell.
