Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications
What is it?
Digital Scholarship and Scholarly Communications are interdisciplinary fields in librarianship that facilitate the production and dissemination of academic research through the use of emerging digital tools and applications, while enhancing the communication of and access to the results of this research.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) enable users to create, combine, and analyze geocoded data—that is, information connected in some manner to geographic coordinates. GIS tools range from simple and lightweight applications to extremely powerful and complicated suites of software.
