Librarians are constantly struggling with ways of providing access to nontextual collections and improving UX with those collections. The NGA library staff have many challenges when providing access to library materials through a geospatial lens. Discover how they overcame these challenges by creating robust metadata records for their special collections combined with a transition to an open source ILS that supports a visual search interface. Learn how they utilized metadata to enable cartographic visualization and manage change as well as user and Agency expectations, all to support the goal of placing the world at its patrons’ fingertips.
