English abstract

Libraries within their role and mission use GIS in order to provide added value services for geographical collections they have developed. Although GIS initially was used by geographers the interdisciplinary aspect of geographic information extended their use in a number of disciplines (e.g. analysis of archaeological data, natural resources management, detect of medical phenomena) turning them into a tool capable of combining different data sources, thus attracting a wide number of users. In the above context, the present work aims primarily to clarify terms such as “geographic information”, “geographical collections”, “geospatial data” and “geographical information systems” as international literature indicates. Furthermore it will attempt the outline of geospatial collection development policy role and librarians’ as well in building services associated with this type of information. As the development of technology and open access offers to users multiple possibilities of utilizing the provided information, librarians by evaluating their current needs and requirements that arise, make respective broadening and strengthening of their skills in order to remain effective in dealing with the variety of their duties.

Greek abstract

Οι βιβλιοθήκες στο πλαίσιο του ρόλου και της αποστολής τους χρησιμοποιούν τα γεωγραφικά πληροφοριακά συστήματα (GIS) προκειμένου να προσφέρουν υπηρεσίες προστιθέμενης αξίας για τις οργανωμένες γεωγραφικές συλλογές τους. Αν και τα GIS χρησιμοποιούνταν αρχικά αποκλειστικά από γεωγράφους, ο διαθεματικός χαρακτήρας της γεωγραφικής πληροφορίας επέκτεινε τη χρήση τους σε ένα μεγάλο αριθμό επιστημών (π.χ. ανάλυση αρχαιολογικών δεδομένων, διαχείριση φυσικών πηγών, ανίχνευση ιατρικών φαινομένων), μετατρέποντας τα σε ένα εργαλείο με δυνατότητα συνδυασμού διαφορετικών πηγών δεδομένων, προσελκύοντας έτσι έναν μεγάλο αριθμό χρηστών. Στο παραπάνω πλαίσιο η παρούσα εργασία σκοπό έχει πρώτιστα να αποσαφηνίσει όρους όπως «γεωγραφική πληροφορία», «γεωγραφικές συλλογές», «γεωχωρικά δεδομένα» και «γεωγραφικά πληροφοριακά συστήματα» στο περιβάλλον των ακαδημαϊκών βιβλιοθηκών έτσι όπως καταγράφονται από τη διεθνή βιβλιογραφία. Παράλληλα, θα επιχειρήσει την σκιαγράφηση του ρόλου των πολιτικών ανάπτυξης γεωχωρικών συλλογών όπως και αυτόν του βιβλιοθηκονόμου στην ανάπτυξη υπηρεσιών που σχετίζονται με αυτό το είδος της πληροφορίας. Καθώς η ανάπτυξη της τεχνολογίας και η ανοικτή πρόσβαση προσφέρουν πολλαπλές δυνατότητες αξιοποίησης των παρεχόμενων πληροφοριών από τους χρήστες, οι βιβλιοθηκονόμοι αξιολογώντας τις τρέχουσες ανάγκες και απαιτήσεις που δημιουργούνται, προβαίνουν σε αντίστοιχη διεύρυνση και ενίσχυση των δεξιοτήτων τους προκειμένου να παραμείνουν αποτελεσματικοί στην διεκπεραίωση των πολυποίκιλων καθηκόντων τους.
