Map Librarianship: A Guide to Geoliteracy, Map and GIS Resources and Services by Susan Elizabeth Ward Aber & Jeremy Aber

Map Librarianship identifies basic geoliteracy concepts and enhances reference and instruction skills by providing details on finding, downloading, delivering, and assessing maps, remotely sensed imagery, and other geospatial resources and services, primarily from trusted government sources. By offering descriptions of traditional maps, geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, and other geospatial technologies, the book provides a timely and practical guide for the map and geospatial librarian to blend confidence in traditional library skill sets.

  • Includes rarely discussed concepts of citing and referencing maps and geospatial data, fair use and copyright
  • Creates an awareness and appreciation of existing print map collections, while building digital stewardship with surrogate map and aerial imagery collections
  • Provides an introduction to the theory and applications of GIS, remote sensing, participatory neogeography and neocartography practices, and other geospatial technologies
  • Includes a list of geospatial resources with descriptions and illustrations of commonly used map types and formats, online geospatial data sources, and an introduction to the most commonly used geospatial software packages available, on both desktop and mobile platforms
