Workshops in the GCMC

University Libraries Technology Training is sponsoring workshops hosted in the GCMC this month. Please visit www.bsu.edu/techtrain/ to sign up for any of the classes:

Introduction to GIS and Map Resources: This session introduces attendees to the geospatial resources available at Bracken Library. Explore the Map Collection and get ideas on how to use maps in your course assignments. In the GIS lab, explore the leading GIS software, online GIS tutorials, datasets, online applications, and in-house digital GIS data. This session is in presentation format with one-on-one assistance from professionals. This workshop will be held in the GCMC on September 6 at 2:00 P.M. and September 19 at 1:00 P.M.

GIS Data: How to Find Reliable Data on the Web: Do you need GIS data for a project that you're working on and don't know where to find it? Are you limited on your funds and need free data? How do you know if the data you're downloading is spatially accurate or up-to-date? Learn some simple rules for finding the most accurate data for your needs and for reading and interpreting the metadata that comes with it. This workshop will be held in the GCMC on September 7 at 9:30 A.M. and September 20 at 2:00 P.M.
