Registration for the 9th annual Geo4LibCamp is now open


Register for Geo4LibCamp 2024


Where: University of Minnesota Campus, Minneapolis, Minnesota

When: May 20-24, 2024


Geo4LibCamp is a hands-on meeting for anyone interested in how libraries can manage and provide access to geospatial resources. This event is often attended by map librarians, metadata specialists, application developers, geospatial professionals, and educators. The main focus is to share best-practices, solve common problems, and address technical issues with integrating geospatial data into a repository and associated services. For the purposes of the camp, we broadly define geospatial data from scanned maps and aerial photography to highly structured shapefiles.

Geo4LibCamp typically features a mix of presentations, workshops, and small group discussions that cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Spatial infrastructures & repositories

  • Geospatial discovery platforms and web services

  • Metadata standards and authoring practices

  • Data management and stewardship

  • Geospatial data resources in support of research and education

While there will be some scheduled lightning talks and workshops, Geo4LibCamp is an unconference, which means that the topics for most of the sessions will be developed collaboratively by the participants.


Please see the Geo4LibCamp website for venue information, a tentative agenda, and more!


Please feel free to spread the word about this event.


We hope to see you there! 



Geo4LibCamp Planning Committee
