The United States Federal Government produces a massive trove of valuable information – but these resources are often difficult to locate and utilize, requiring the addition of another layer of cognizance and expertise to the librarian’s traditional skill set. Finding and UsingU.S. Government Information: A Practical Guide will: 

  • Serve as a guide to the vast universe of government information, with a special focus on digital methods of delivery
  • Provide librarians with the tools they need to understand how government information is produced, organized, located, and accessed for most effectual use
  • For those new to the government information landscape and government information specialists alike, this volume will also offer an annotated listing by subject which can serve as a ready-reference tool for some of the most widely-useful government information resources
  • While geared primarily towards reference and instruction librarians, acquisitions and collection development librarians may also find this book useful in making purchasing decisions in light of resources freely available from the US Federal Government
