The Geographic Information Librarianship Project Findings
 
http://ala.adobeconnect.com/p6xljcz4yg9/ 
 

The GIL project was a two-year curricular research collaboration between the University of Tennessee and Drexel University. In 2012, Professor Tony Grubesic, Ph.D., (Drexel University) and Assistant Professor Wade Bishop, Ph.D., (University of Tennessee) were awarded the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant via the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in their "Programs to Build Institutional Capacity" category. The GIL project objectives were (1) to create two online GIL courses that address the important GIL core competencies; (2) to implement a recruitment plan and deliver the two online GIL courses at both institutions; (3) to build a model using a survey validation study of the knowledge, skills, and abilities to inform LIS curricula; and (4) to increase GIS related research in LIS. This webinar will present finding from all phases of the project and invite discussion on the future direction for education in this growing area.
