Title A summary of geospatial initiatives in the University of Utah's Marriott Library
Date 2013-03
Description Abstract: The Marriott Library's Geospatial Initiatives Committee consists of librarians and staff involved in projects designed to provide access to different library resources through geospatial interfaces. We are creating maps that link to resources in our digital collections, including the Western Soundscape Archives and historical photographs, and applying georeferencing to scanned geological thesis maps to manipulate them with Google Earth. The library's home page now has a clickable map for accessing digital collections by county, and we are working with a Geography professor on creating a "Historical GIS" that utilizes Sanborn fire insurance maps of Salt Lake City and recreates the downtown area as it appeared a century ago. To pull these various projects together, we set up a geospatial portal through CampusGuides. See: http://campusguides.lib.utah.edu/GIS
