Thanks for a great class!

Folks, the course is now officially over once you hand in your written projects today, and I wanted to say again that I thought you did a great job learning about both GIS software and geographical analysis this summer. Please keep in touch if you end up using any of these tools and techniques for further classes or future jobs. And thanks for caring about the place of free and accurate information in our increasingly global, increasingly diverse, and increasingly technological society.

Greg,

Thank YOU for a great class. The class gave me a chance to play with the GIS that I wasn't able to do with my prior class in cartography.

Ok, I consider myself a geographer so I am somewhat biased, but I think a GIS class should at least be highly recommended for library students planning to work in public libraries. SLIS can play a leadership role in this regard. SLIS should consider themselves fortunate that we have you as a resource. If there is anyway I can help in making the case for more up-to-date software and hardware (besides letting SLIS know how I would use it in the future), please let me know.

Thanks and have a great summer!
