We have set aside several blocks of time each week for a GIS Work Lab in Hillman Library's Digital Scholarship Commons. During this time, selected workstations with ArcGIS, QGis, and other spatial software will be reserved for GIS users. The work labs are staffed by GIS Student Assistants, who will provide support and consultation during lab hours. To schedule a consult with a GIS Student Assistant ahead of time, please visit the library’s GIS Services page and click the "Schedule Appointment" button.
Current GIS Work Lab hours:
Mondays: 1-3pm, 5-9pm
Tuesdays, 1-3pm, 5-9pm
To ask a question about GIS or spatial information at other times, please start with the library's Ask Us email form.
