[Libs-Or] Map of OR public libraries?

I was just able to create this map using the IMLS Data Catalog and their FY2013 public library outlet data (sorry, academics!):
https://data.imls.gov/Research-Statistical-/Oregon-Public-Libraries-FY2013-Outlet-data/9vyy-a3b9

A more enterprising person could export this data, find a similar source for data on academic libraries in Oregon, and use Google Fusion Tables<https://support.google.com/fusiontables/answer/2571232> to make a more complete map without too much trouble.

Google maps has a start.  Search Oregon Libraries and you get a pretty good representation - mostly public and some academic.

Sue, what a great idea!

It would be cool to be able to import a list from the yearly reports from OSL. Wonder if it could be automated? (Scripters out there, here's a project :))

We have a similar map for just the depository libraries which I put together a couple of years ago:

Good morning,
I'm looking for an actual map of Oregon public libraries, rather than a directory, but not finding anything.

Any leads?

BTW, we created one of Oregon County Law Libraries - check it out, if you want:

[Or, from the Oregon Council of County Law Libraries "Directory of county law libraries" webpage, select "Map":

Thanks!
