The importance of libraries that provide requisite data, computer hardware, and softwaqre for patrons tp perform spatial analysis and visualization is discussed. Many institutions are investing financial resources to acquire electronic data, computer hardware, and software to equip the libraries and to provide the requisite staff training necessary to support geographic information systems (GIS) and other activities. Providing access to electronic databases requires a review of existing administrative policies. A program is under development which will incorporate spatial information technology and data analysis to other disciplines such as business management, environmental science and transportation management.
