This study is a content analysis of a sample of GIS services websites in academic libraries. Websites studied belong to academic institutions that are participants in the Association of Research Libraries GIS Literacy Project and are designated Federal Depository libraries. This study specifically explores how academic libraries present GIS services on their websites and identifies potential barriers the websites may pose to users. Results indicate difficulties in website navigation and lack of advanced browsing applications for spatial data searching.
