1.   SERVICES
A.  GIS FOR BUSINESSPEOPLE  WORKSHOP AVAILABLE TO YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS
  Familiarity with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a desirable skill for entry to many professions. Help your students broaden their career options by letting them know about the GIS for Businesspeople Workshop to be held Thursday, November 8, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. in the Library.    
  The workshop focus is a simulation of best-site decision making aided by computer mapping with ArcView GIS software. Distribution of potential customers, their buying power and presence /absence of competitors might be difficult to interpret from raw statistics, but are seen quickly when mapped out. The workshop includes hands-on experience, with option to schedule additional self-paced time on the Library's GeoStats computer.
   Faculty are also welcome to attend.  Description at: http://library.umaine.edu/newmedia/#Computer_Mapping .   Register with Karen Stewart: karen.stewart@umit.maine.edu, voice: 581-1680.  Part of the Fogler Library Workshop Series.
