Important Spring 2021 Information

The  Spring 2021 semester will be very different than a typical semester due to COVID-19 related changes to campus operations, but the Libraries is still very much available to provide GIS support and geospatial research assistance. If you need to utilize GIS software you can follow the links at the top left of this page to reach guides which provide step-by-step instructions for installing GIS software on a personal computer. If you need to use GIS software on campus you can still visit a UT Libraries computer lab which has QGIS, ArcGIS Pro, and ArcMap, though our labs will be at reduced capacity to allow for greater social distancing. You also now have the ability to remotely connect to a Libraries computer in the PCL Windows Lab to use GIS software in you prefer - see the following guide for details. Personalized research consultations are still available remotely via Zoom and can be arranged by clicking the "Schedule Appointment" button in the right column of this guide. Finally, while we will not be having in-person events this semester, we will still be holding virtual Zoom events that are of relevance for geospatial researchers like Data & Donuts workshops which will be held on select Fridays this semester.

Spring 2021 Virtual Events

All Spring 2021 events will be held virtually via Zoom. Please check back soon for event registration links. To receive the latest UT GIS event announcements in your inbox sign up for the ut-gis-events mailing list by visiting
