Online Guide to U.S. Map Resources: Take the Survey—Get on the Map!

Christine Kollen

Abstract


The Guide to U.S. Map Resources, produced by the American Library Association’s Map and Geography Round Table (MAGERT) in 1986, 1990, and 2006, provides detailed directory information for map collections and cartographic resources in libraries and similar institutions throughout the United States. A decade has passed since the third edition was published, and there have been many changes in how libraries collect, preserve, provide access to, and administer maps and other cartographic resources. There is also yet another, newer, type of cartographic information to consider: geospatial data. In addition, there has been an explosion in the use of geospatial technologies, meaning the demand to find geospatial data for research needs is more prominent than ever.
