Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents…I Didn’t Know I Could Do That!: using government and government-related websites for research on just about anything, September 25 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)
The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us all do better reference work by increasing our familiarity with government information resources, and by discovering the best strategies for navigating them.
Government and government-related websites are great places to find a wide variety of information useful to librarians and citizens. All too often, they are overlooked and underutilized. This webinar highlights a number of official local, county, state, and federal sites, and also covers some very useful demographic, legal, and medical information resources. The resources used in the presentation slides are all hyperlinked, so you can start exploring as soon as the presentation is available.
Alexandra (Alex) Simons is the Research and Instruction Librarian for History, Political Science, and Government Documents at the University of Houston’s M.D. Anderson Library. She has done presentations and webinars for librarians, law librarians, researchers, and the general public on using government resources, and has also written articles and presented on marketing and branding for librarians and library collections. Alex is the immediate past chair of the Texas Library Association’s GODORT, and is currently on the Education and Development committees of ALA’s GODORT. She received her MLIS from the University of North Texas. She can be reached at acsimons @ uh.edu.
