Call For Papers: GIQ Special Issue on Libraries

Government Information Quarterly, a premier peer-reviewed journal, is calling for papers for a special issue entitled, "Digital Government Information and Libraries: Shifting Paradigms Or Predictable Partnerships"

Click here to view a description of the planned special issue and the call for papers from GovDoc-L.

This is really exciting as I think about the extent to which library-sponsored GIS programs rely upon and use government information. I was a government documents librarian who dabbled in GIS before my current position. I would wager that a fair number of GIS librarians worked closely with gov docs/information before discovering (happily falling into?) this marvelous world of GIS.
