In the last few years Kirkwood Library Services have focused on creating a collection of books on the use and application of GPS (Global Positioning System) http://www.gps.gov and GIS (Geographic Information System) http://www.esri.com/what-is-gis . The Main Campus Library in Cedar Rapids has developed quite a collection. Browse it around 910 in the circulating collection or find them in the catalog under the subject “Geographic Information Systems.” Even though they are mainly housed in Cedar Rapids, you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
