Last week, I gave a hands-on tutorial in using GIS to map census data as part of the New York Census Research Data Center's 2nd Annual Workshop series. I wrote the tutorial in HTML and posted it on my GIS blog on the Resources page. Feel free to have a look, and to point others to it. Eventually, it will move to a Baruch server.
And since I've never made a formal announcement, here it is - I have created a GIS Librarian blog where I'll be hosting thoughts, tips, tricks, and links to data and resources. The url for the blog is: gothos.info.
