Government Information Resources

April 12th, 2009

Hans Raum will give a presentation about both printed and online information resources available from federal government agencies, from the CIA to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. This will be an opportunity to see some of the oldest and most interesting government publications we received early in the 1800s to the some of the most useful Web sites created by various federal agencies. The US government is the largest publisher in the world and government agencies quickly took advantage of the potential of the Web to make their services and information resources more widely available. Potential future developments will be discussed, along with their implications for our role as one of seven federal depository libraries in Vermont.

When: Wednesday, April 15 at 9:00 am
Where: LIB 105
