Format: Hardcover
If you're wondering just where all the useful information is in the so-called "information explosion," this item just might be for you. Joe Morehead's book is a part of Library Unlimited's "Library and Information Science Text series" (intended as a textbook for librarians in training), but the book is an excellent resource for genealogists, business researchers, educators-anyone who wants to learn more about the vast and varied store of information the U.S. government makes available. And you don't have to be a doctoral student to use this book: Morehead writes in a clear and concise style; facsimiles of pages from various reference sources are included, so that the newcomer to a source will know what to expect.

Of especial interest to newbies and Internet veterans alike is a the first chapter, "Public Access in the Electronic Age," which covers the legal aspects of information provision as well as electronic sources of government information. The history and operation of the Government Printing Office and the Depository Library System are discussed. General reference sources, sources of legislative, executive, administrative, legal, statistical, technical, geographic information are covered in detail. One of the best texts for learning what the government publishes and where to find it.
