This is a starting point for GIS books and journals that the UC San Diego Library has, both print and electronic.

If you are looking specifically for materials related to GIS and Librarianship, explore 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. 

Check out new GIS books (physical or electronic) available from the Library.
