About this item

Ormes explains simple government information search strategies, highlighting federal government resources that public and school librarians can use to help support the education of young citizens, K-12. When teachers and librarians think beyond the Common Core Civics and History standards and instead consider integrating information literacy in the curriculum as a whole, she says, then it becomes apparent that government information has unique value. Her topics are stakeholders in US government information; understanding the governmental process; education; science; arts and humanities; numbers: the census and beyond; money; agency pages, digital information, apps, and mobile sites; and finding the needle in the haystack. She also explains how some smaller public libraries are now eligible to join the Federal Depository Library Program to receive only electronic materials.
