Abstract

The U.S. Government is the largest producer of information in the world. These include some of the most useful reference sources at the information desk – the Occupational Outlook Handbook, Statistical Abstract of the United States, and the World Factbook. Since 1994 G.P.O. and other federal agencies have been moving steadily toward electronic production of information. Virtually all of these information sources are now freely available on the Internet. With the exponential proliferation of electronic government information resources, choosing which resources to add to the collection or highlight on library web sites can be a daunting task. Fortunately, G.P.O. and federal depository librarians have teamed up to produce a variety of tools to make it easier for all libraries to identify and add valuable government information to their library collection.
