Registration will end at close-of-business this Thursday, July 14, for
the next offering of the sell-out online course "Introduction to Spatial
Literacy and Online Mapping."


This course will run July 18-August 5, and will introduce students and
library staff to a variety of mapping tools and GIS technologies that
are of interest to both public and academic library users. Librarians
will be able to apply their newly developed Web 2.0 mapping skills in
their reference work, and liaison responsibilities. Through hands-on
exercises, demonstrations and presentations, the librarian will receive
a thorough overview of GIS-related technologies that they may be exposed
to in the library. Topics covered include geographic literacy,
geographic information systems (GIS), online mapping, and tools like
Google Earth and Google Maps.
