ISSN 1492-9732

ACME is “an on-line international journal for critical and radical analyses of the social, the spatial and the political. The journal’s purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical and radical work about space in the social sciences – including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, feminist, marxist, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist and socialist perspectives.”

Sample article: Crampton, Jeremy W. & Krygier, John. (2006). An introduction to critical cartography. ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies, 4 (1), 11-33.

This journal is a departure from most of the material you will find access to on this site, but it may be of interest to those researching human geography and the intersection between theoretical social critique and geography.

Welcome to the blog for geographic information librarianship. This blog accompanies a self-directed graduate-level course designed by a student enrolled in the Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) at the University of British Columbia.  I intend to post regular comments as I work my way through the course during the summer of 2008. I hope to encourage discussion about the field of map librarianship and the management of geospatial data in libraries of all kinds.
