Abstract:

Government documents, both physical and electronic, constitute a rich and varied resource that calls for special attention. And because government information is useful and pervasive in nearly every kind of library, more and more librarians of all types need to know how to work effectively with federal, state, and international resources. This volume gathers the expertise of experienced government information librarians from across the country. Providing real-world insight into the work, collections, and interests of this discipline, the contributors survey the wide variety of government information and the people who use it; discuss what it is like to be a government documents librarian, from the first day on the job through taking on a management role; address networking, training, and other essential tools for collaboration and learning; cover space planning, streamlining, disaster preparedness and response, the increasing prevalence of digital information, and other key collection issues; offer best practices for connecting library users with government information; look at research guides, workshops, and other teaching and training topics; and explore advocating for transparency and access to information, promoting government documents to library users, and using exhibits as community outreach.
