Check out our new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Research Guide to learn more about Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial data!

The guide provides a basic introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial data, and contains pages with numerous links to geospatial data sources by location and subject. The guide also discusses search strategies, labs and software, and citing data. It also links to many additional training resources, such as books, courses, and videos, and highlights special GIS projects that the library has worked on.

The Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (ACMLA) has announced its annual student paper contest. Essays may deal with access to and information about geospatial data, cartography, cartographic materials, map information, map data, GIS data and geo-referenced information. The award includes $250.00, free membership in the Association for one year, and an invitation to present the paper at the ACMLA annual conference. More details can be found in this flyer.
