What does the field of geography encompass? What are the intersections between geography and geographic information systems (GIS) librarianship? How many types of maps are there, and how are they acquired, accessed, or manipulated? This volume provides a wide range of contextual and background information, from snapshots of current research in geography to descriptions of the tools used by those active in GIS. Learn about the interdisciplinary connections that stem from geography/GIS work, from political science to environmental studies to digital humanities. Lists of must-have reference sources, core journals, and professional development tools will be helpful to those working in reference, collections, or instructional capacities with geography or GIS-based users.
