Maps, Atlases, and Geographic Literacy
October 18th, 2018
This session spans the topics of collections, tech tools, and digital literacy through a geographic lens. Librarians have been meeting geographic information needs for as long as there have been libraries. Like all areas of librarianship, the methods used to meet this needs have evolved over time, especially since the onset of the digital age. How do we best meet the geographic information needs today? Bid farewell to paper atlases and maps completely in favour of curating GIS data libraries instead? This session will discuss how to best manage and deliver collections and services to those with geographic information needs.
