About the Author:

Andrea M. Morrison, the editor, is currently a cataloger of government documents at Indiana University s library and has served as the past chair of GODORT and in leadership roles for GODORT committees.
GODORT provides a forum for the discussion of problems and concerns, as well as for the exchange of ideas among librarians working with government documents. GODORT works to initiate and support programs to increase the availability, use, and bibliographic control of documents. GODORT strives to increase communication between documents librarians and other librarians and contributes to the extension and improvement of education and training of documents librarians

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. 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
