GIS Outreach Librarian

Cambridge, MA

The GIS Outreach Librarian works to improve awareness on campus about geospatial technology and to spread the skills to use that technology.  The position works with faculty and their TFs to design spatially oriented projects that are academically rigorous but achievable within the limited time available to the students. This includes assessing the landscape of available tools and recommending/selecting suitable options.  It also includes instruction on in-demand tools and broader topics such as geoliteracy, bias and racism as reflected in spatial data collection and use, and spatial analysis concepts through both in-person workshops and asynchronous tutorials.

The GIS Outreach Librarian collaborates with library colleagues to apply geospatial methods to traditional materials and uncover new insights into the Collections holdings.
