Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The definitive guide to U.S. government information on the Web has been expanded and updated with the latest information from the current administration, including material on the Department of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act, and the E-Government Act of 2002. Peter Hernon, one of the country's foremost authorities on government information, and his colleagues provide additional Web sites and offer valuable strategies for effectively accessing and using government information online.

More than a mere directory of Web sites, this authoritative work serves as a cardinal pointer through the government's labyrinthine structure and the myriad information resources available to the public, giving users a clearer understanding of U.S. government agencies and their online publications and services. An essential and regularly updated reference, this guide is a reliable roadmap to a vast and diverse field of important information.

Book News Annotation:

This guide to finding government information on the web serves as a directory, but also as a map to the government's structure and as a play-book outlining strategies for locating information. The material is organized according to the branch of government and agency, the means of finding it, the type of information, its subject, and its audience. The authors include librarians, library administrators, and professors of library science. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
