Again, we do some of this and some other library units also do this, and we are collaborating, increasingly. The GIS ad
hoc support comes from the InfoGraphics lab in the Geography department. This is not centralized.
DHC is most likely to be involved in 1, 3, and 4, CCNMTL, CDRS, and LDPD in all.
GIS is primarily with the GIS librarian, outside DLS but we have done some FGDC encoding and geotagging, etc.
Note: some of this work is done in conjunction with other campus units.
