In the six years since the second edition of the bestselling Oryx information guide, Using Government Information Sources, was published, a lot has changed in the searching process. Much government information is now found exclusively on the Internet and there are many more print resources available. The new third edition, by Jean L. Sears and Marilyn K. Moody, is the extensively revised edition of this popular and useful title. Designed for beginning as well as experienced researchers, this resource will guide users to the best government information sources.
Updates the bestselling Oryx information guide with many more print and Internet resources.
This iteration reflects the proliferation of online government information resources and publications since the 1994 edition. Besides these Web and other sources, the authors provide time- saving specifics on subject, agency, and statistical search strategies. They also cover special techniques for exploring areas of interest such as judicial reports, patents and trademarks, and national archives. Includes source checklists by subject, catalog and screen samples, and a list of selected nongovernment addresses. Sears heads the Government Documents Department at Miami U. Libraries in Oxford, Ohio. Mood recently became an associate university librarian at the U. of California, Santa Barbara. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
