On Order



Managing and providing access to the ever-expanding wealth of electronic government information now available presents a significant challenge for librarians, even those who are government documents specialists.

In two parts, this expert guide from ALA's Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) provides the necessary resources librarians can use to connect patrons to specific information via government sites and electronic documents.

In part one, the contributing authors discuss historical contexts and contemporary issues of electronic government collections. In part two, they give practical guidance for implementing and improving services.

Deftly Andrea Morrison, this book

Navigates the local, state, federal, and international e-government landscape Provides in-depth description and examples for cataloging electronic government documents Suggests outreach methods for sharing resources internally and externally Recommends practical tips for keeping up with electronic government information

Offering sound advice for anyone who is or should be working with government documents, this book is especially useful for reference, map, digital, and technical services librarians.

Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

This handy, commonsense guide covers the local, state, federal, and international e-government landscape. It is written by practitioner experts, and their collective experience gives it sterling credibility. Editor Morrison also produced the well-received International Government Information and Country Information (2004). Part 1 is made up of six chapters covering areas such as historical trends, policies, best practices, and future challenges. Chapter titles include Digital Preservation of Electronic Government Information and Reaching Out to Youth with Electronic Government Information.  Part 2 provides practical advice for implementing and improving services with regard to collection development, bibliographic control, digital preservation, and related topics. Chapters here include U.S. Government Printing Office Practices for Cataloging Electronic Resources and Foreign Countries' Electronic Government Information. Managing Electronic Government Information in Libraries is worthy of space on the professional reading shelf of virtually any librarian who works with government information in e-format.--Lichtenstein, Art A.

"Library Journal" İncelemesi

In the past decade, government documents have undergone an electronic metamorphosis, and documents librarians have been challenged to adhere to their historical mission of providing government information and access to the people while re-interpreting that mission in terms of technological innovation. This volume's 16 chapters deal with various aspects of this challenge, including access to diverse populations, special concerns regarding geographic information, collection development, digital preservation, Government Printing Office (GPO) cataloging practices, local bibliographic control and processing, government information as part of reference and information literacy programs, and, finally, the difficulties of managing local, state, and international government information. Barbara Miller and Barbara J. Mann's "Government Information Instruction in the Information Literacy Environment" provides an understanding and examples of integrating bibliographic instruction with government information and literacy competency standards. Hui Hua Chua's chapter on collection development has insights for the selection and collection of electronic resources that extend beyond its concentration on government information. Editor Morrison has served as past chair of the American Library Association's Government Documents Round Table (GODORT), authored numerous scholarly works on government information, and is an associate librarian at Indiana University, Bloomington. Essential for academic and depository libraries, highly recommended for all libraries.--Margaret Sylvia, St. Mary's Univ. Lib., San Antonio (c) Copyright 2010.
