The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free. The initial focus will be on the presenter’s Spanish-language, food, energy, water, and health guides, which highlight government resources; the most recent one was completed in May 2020. The rationale behind the Spanish language guide and a few examples from it will be part of the discussion. The topical government guides were created to support a multi-section first year composition course. Along with showing the guides, the reasons and thought behind the formatting of them will be described. These highlight opportunities that exist to promote government resources via curricular means. Strategies for making these opportunities into reality will be discussed along with recommendations on what to consider and what to do when creating your own topical guides featuring government resources. We will meet together online this week on Tuesday, September 15th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession98 Presenter: Naomi Lederer, Professor Emerita at Colorado State University Libraries (CSUL), was the Government Information Librarian at CSUL (a Selective Depository) in the years before she retired. She completed the FDLP Coordinator Certificate Program as part of the fall 2018 cohort and used government documents throughout her entire career—which began when pretty much everything was in print. When she took over as Government Information Librarian she brought the existing online guide up-to-date and added new sections to it, including all of the guides that will be the focus of the presentation. We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page at https://nclaonline.org/Help!-Webinars.
