Government Information: the Most Interesting Information in the World

Join Minitex and the University of Minnesota Libraries Regional Depository Library in a unique webinar series that highlights the exciting government information available to you and your patrons for free. Learn to determine the best starting points for your government information searching and be informed, my friends, through these free webinars.

Nearly 300 federal agencies. Millions of websites. 1 clueless patron. 1 somewhat clueless library staffer. How do you connect all these pieces together to create a positive reference transaction? Join Kirsten Clark, Government Information and Regional Depository Librarian, University of Minnesota Libraries, to learn government information reference interview techniques and basic websites to start with in answering government related questions. Gain confidence in dealing with government information and find out contacts within the Minitex region to go to for additional help in answering those more complex questions. This webinar is first in a series of government resource trainings to be offered throughout Fall 2012 and Spring 2013.
