Prepared by the American Library Association's Government Documents Round Table, this revised edition of the very useful Complete Guide to Citing Government Documents (Congressional Information Service, 1984) includes new chapters by Debora Cheney and Helen Sheehy, devoted to electronic formats and foreign government information services, respectively. The sample citations conform "as much as possible" to American National Standard Institute (ANSI) bibliographic standards, with references to the U.S. Code , Federal Register , maps, state agricultural experiment publications, European Community reports, and much more. The extended treatment of electronic formats includes CD-ROMs, online services, and E-mail, many of the citations being similar to those found in the National Library of Medicine Recommended Formats for Bibliographic Citation (1991). Some electronic citations are quite lengthy, raising the possibility that writers, editors, and instructors may question the inclusion of information such as the number of bytes, access software, and system requirements as citation elements. Notwithstanding, this item is essential for reference and professional collections in academic and research libraries.
