Introduction to Spatial Literacy and Online Mapping from RUSA

You may use tools like Google Maps in your personal life

all the time for locating restaurants and local businesses,

driving directions or planning trips via public
transportation, but have you considered how this same

technology could be used at your library to improve library services?

RUSA’s online course “Introduction to Spatial Literacy and Online Mapping”
is the perfect opportunity for librarians and library staff from public and
academic libraries to gain a basic understanding of Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) technology and learn about specific technologies they may be
exposed to at the library. Registration for this course, which runs Nov. 5-25,
ends on Thursday, Nov. 1.

**Know someone who should enroll in this course? Please forward this message!**

If you’ve already taken this introductory course or have a good working
knowledge of GIS and want to go further, consider enrolling in “Spatial
Literacy II: Incorporation of Maps and GIS”, which shows you how to
harness these technologies for reference work, library projects, library
administration, collection delivery, instruction, outreach and library
promotion. The next session of this course begins Dec. 3.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if several of your staff could take this course and your
library could reap the benefits in improved library services? Group discounts
are available! Rates for two or more registrants from the same library, library
network or library system start at $110 per person.
