The GIS Library serves as a point of voluntary access to information and ideas and as a learning laboratory for students as they acquire the critical thinking and problem-solving skills needed in a rapidly changing, pluralistic society. It provides a well-balanced, internationally sensitive collection of print, non-print and web-based information databases.
