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.

Often, we think of LGBT resources as those specifically labeled and recognized as such: an encyclopedia called “encyclopedia of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history” or a database indexing articles from LGBT journals. However, there are many excellent LGBT resources hiding in plain sight and freely available from government sources. Census data, legislation about human rights, and agency reports on a range of topics are a few examples of these riches. Join us in this webinar with Reference and Instruction Librarians, Danya Leebaw and Heather Tompkins, from Carleton College to explore an array of government publication sources useful for supporting research in LGBT studies and serving LGBT communities.

Presenters:
Heather Tompkins, Reference and Instruction Librarian for Humanities, Carleton College
