The purpose of Endowment Fund Grants is to support programs developed by SLA Chapters, Divisions, or Committees that will further the scientific, literary, and educational purpose for which the Special Libraries Association is organized and operated.

The Chapter was awarded $7,000.

SLA membership will benefit as a whole by increasing the understanding of the various applications of this new information technology as more libraries and information centers incorporate GIS into their patron service operations. As more information users become aware of the potential of GIS, information professionals will be called upon to assess, acquire, and access geospatial information. SLA annual conferences will be the venue for this project. The division was awarded $5,700.
