Federal Information Interest Group Discussion at ALA Midwinter

Posting on behalf of Justin Otto  

I'm Justin Otto, this year's Interest Group Leader of the GODORT Federal Information Interest Group (FIIG). We're piloting this interest group to provide a forum for the sharing of knowledge regarding U.S. federal government information. FIIG is open to anyone who has an interest in any and all aspects of federal government information.

The FIIG discussion topic for ALA Midwinter will be "Using Government Information in Library Instruction". Do you teach instruction sessions which include searching for laws & regulations, unemployment statistics, or something of that nature? Do you want to learn about and discuss instructional strategies for incorporating government information? If so, please join us for the FIIG meeting to share your ideas.

FIIG will be Saturday, February 10th, Colorado Convention Center room 108
