Here you will find a starting point for a list of GIS materials that are in text (written or electronic books) or in a journal. This site is intended for UC San Diego GIS users as well as the larger GIS community, and should be viewed as a complement to other sites and supplemental to the Map, GIS and Metadata/Cataloging Librarian Core Competencies created and published by the American Library Association's Maps and Geospatial Information Round Table (MAGIRT).
If you are looking for resources on the web, try the Publications & Blogs page in this guide.

These are but a small number of very good GIS texts.
There are several GIS publications. Some are completely free and some are subscriptions. When the items are subscriptions and UCSD has paid for or has access to them, the hyperlink will go directly into the UC San Diego Libraries catalog.
These books can be found in the Data & GIS Lab or elsewhere in the Geisel Library building, and may help you with your Google Earth, Maps or SketchUp projects.
