The Map and Geospatial Information Round Table (MAGIRT) leads and inspires information professionals at all levels of expertise in their work with map and geospatial information resources, collections and technologies in all formats, through community, education and advocacy.

Formed in 1980, MAGIRT -- with close to 300 members -- is one of the round tables in the American Library Association. As the world's largest map and geospatial library organization, MAGIRT provides a forum for people interested or involved in any aspect of map or geospatial librarianship.
MAGIRT members benefit from:
  • A forum for the exchange of ideas by persons working with or interested in map, geography, or geospatial collections or information
  • Advocacy and education for increased availability, use and control of map and geospatial collections
  • Annual meetings with informative programs and opportunities to meet professional colleagues; virtual and Midwinter working meetings providing opportunities for involvement on committees and task forces; and informal social gatherings offering fun and new friends
  • Publications such as base line, the MAGIRT newsletter; Cartographic Citations: a Style Guide (2nd edition published in 2010) and others related to map, geospatial, geography and GIS libraries and librarianship
