The geospatial services team operates out of the GIS Lab, located on the 9th floor of the Library / Tech building in rooms 951 & 952. Baruch students, faculty, and staff can meet with the Geospatial Data Librarian to discuss projects and get assistance, and can work independently on GIS or data-related projects in the lab with help nearby. CUNY affiliates are also welcome to inquire. Appointments are required (sorry, no drop-ins).

We specialize in: Census and demographic data, geographic and place-based datasets, GIS and mapping (see our goals and services)
