Managing electronic government information in libraries: issues and practicesAvis d'utilisateur - Book Verdict
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
