Mann Library offers walk-in help at the GIS Help Desk, located in the Consultation Area just outside Stone Classroom. We can help you get started on a project, help you find data, or refer you to other GIS experts on campus.
If the walk-in hours (typically 2-4 pm Monday through Friday when classes are in session) are not convenient for you, you may also set up a one-on-one consultation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Book a Consultation link (at right) to arrange a consultation that fits your schedule.
