As you know, many changes have occurred in the publishing practices of our governments. Each year more documents are published solely on the Internet. It may benefit you to communicate with your colleagues as you grapple with disseminating this valuable information.
APLA has been approached to have an Interest Group founded whose focus would be - Government Documents.  In order to establish an interest group within APLA, a minimum of six people must make up the group membership.  As well, one of the members must be willing to convene the group.
Visit APLA's homepage at  and to APLA Organizational Documents; APLA Procedures Manual; Procedures Manual - Part 2  "Guidelines for Committee & Interest Groups" to find information about committees and interest groups, as well as the responsibilities of a convenor.
If you have interest in joining a Government Documents Interest Group please email me at [log in to unmask].  With sufficient interest, the group could be established during our upcoming meetings taking place during the CLA/APLA joint conference.  I look forward to hearing from you.
