Mr. Bishop has invited NDSA-GEO members to speak at one of his future classes. The remaining available class dates are April 4th and 11th are the dates left in my class for guest lectures. He notes that the 11th class is actually addressing archives and data centers, so that may be an opportune date.

If interested, please get in touch with him at [log in to unmask]

I’ve attached copies of his syllabi for a pair of classes he teaches on geospatial technology to LIS students.

The next NDSA-GEO meeting will be Friday April 18: John Faundeen of the EROS Data Center will give a presentation on the NDSA Levels of Preservation activity and USGS' efforts at implementation.

If you have suggestions for future speakers as part of the NDSA-GEO speakers series, please add them to the wiki at:
