Managing electronic government information in libraries; issues and practices.


Managing electronic government information in libraries; issues and practices.

Ed. by Andrea M. Morrison.

Am. Library Association


240 pages




Morrison (Indiana University library) provides a guide from the ALA's Government Documents Round Table with the resources librarians can use to connect patrons to information via government sites and documents. Divided into two sections, the first discusses historical contexts and contemporary issues of electronic government collections, while the second gives practical guidance for implementing and improving services. The book specifically provides descriptions and examples for cataloguing government documents, suggests outreach methods for sharing resources internally and externally, and recommends practical tips for keeping up with electronic government information. Although intended for libraries of all types, this title would be particularly useful for reference, map, digital, and technical services librarians.
