Since the emergence of dynamic and easily accessible online mapping tools, there has been a drastic increase in geographic interest and awareness. Whether for personal, social, professional or academic use, people are using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to communicate information in a map format. Whether it’s using Google Earth to study urban change, or creating Google Map Mashups to show cemetery locations, more and more members of society are turning to online mapping programs for their visualization needs. With so many using GIS technology in their daily lives, it is time to train librarians to not only assist library clients with their inquiries, but to use the technology themselves
