The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

Geoliteracy is important for K-12 students to learn in today’s increasingly connected world.  There are many online tools that can help teach students geographic perspective and spatial reasoning. This webinar will look at some of the most useful sites for K-12 education focusing on geoliteracy skills, human-environment interactions, and other basic geographic principles.  The intended audience is educators of all types: teachers, school media specialists, and other geographic information librarians who are interested in collaborating with the K-12 educational community.  Sponsored by ALA MAGIRT - the Map and Geospatial Information Round Table.
About the presenter:
Carol McAuliffe has been the Head of the Map & Imagery Library at the George A. Smathers' Libraries at the University of Florida for almost 7 years and specializes in geoliteracy, geography and GIS education, and the educational role of the geographic information librarian.
