It is your last chance to register for the Make Your Own Map: Exploring 
Geographic Information Science (GIS) for Librarians workshop that will be 
held online on Tuesday, February 17, from 2 - 4 PM. The deadline to 
register is Wednesday, February 11.

With the escalation of online GIS mapping applications (demographic and 
business databases for example), it is becoming increasingly important for 
librarians to understand and be proficient with these tools to best serve 
our patrons and conduct research. Learn several different ways of making 
maps and utilizing these resources using both free websites and databases. 
Participants will upload a list of addresses to create a point map and 
will shade in areas of interest to create a simple reference map.

Library users increasing want digital data in a geospatial format usable 
by GIS programs.  Your patrons may not realize that the library offers a 
variety of data sources.  This workshop will show several sources for 
GIS-friendly data and also introduce QGIS, an open source GIS program.

The cost for this workshop is $59 for MCLS members and $119 for non-MCLS 
members. Group viewing rates are also available if you have multiple staff 
at your library that would like to view together.

Please contact training at mcls.org if you have any questions.

Thanks! - heather
