GIS for Libraries
Academic and research libraries use GIS to support teaching and exploration in a variety of disciplines, including social sciences (geography and urban planning), physical sciences (geology and environmental studies), and humanities (archaeology and history). With GIS, students and faculty can integrate and analyze data from many sources to develop new theories and knowledge.
Public libraries use GIS for administrative purposes and as a research tool. Library directors can analyze who is using their facilities and identify potential gaps in service or to match their services to community demographics.
These stories and demonstrations show how libraries benefit from the use of geographic analysis and GIS.
