“Geoscience Librarianship 101” – a free seminar on earth science
information resources and their organization – will be presented by the
Geoscience Information Society on Saturday, October 8 in Minneapolis,
Minnesota. Registration is open to all information professionals as well
as students in library and information studies.
The workshop is aimed at librarians new to the geosciences and those
already in the field who want a refresher. A team of experienced
geoscience librarians will cover topics in collection development,
reference and instructional services, maps and geographic information
systems (GIS). Presenters include Lisa Dunn (Colorado School of Mines),
Adonna Fleming (University of Nebraska-Lincoln), Lura E. Joseph
(University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana), and Linda Zellmer (Western
Illinois University). After the formal presentations participants will
have the opportunity to engage in open discussion and to give feedback.

University in St. Louis, is coordinating the event.
