Modeled on Eva Dodsworth's LITA Guide of the same name, Getting Started with GIS will provide participants with an introduction to both the online and desktop GIS currently being used by library administrators, librarians, library support staff and library users. The three week course will run Aug. 13 - Sept. 4 and will consist of weekly asynchronous lectures and modules in Moodle. Participants will learn firsthand how to create online maps; how to properly use maps in library Web pages; how to embed GIS technology into library projects; and how to enjoy GIS and mapping technologies in personal endeavors. Students will be exposed to many online resources that are currently being used by public, academic and special libraries across North America. No previous mapping or GIS experience is necessary.
Registration and additional information on both courses is available on the LITA website.
