The open online distribution of government information is changing the ways researchers access data and  documentation produced by governmental agencies worldwide. This Global Resources Forum webinar will explore:

  • changes in the supply chain
  • how libraries can continue to ensure sustained access to this information for researchers, and
  • what role CRL can play in supporting those efforts. 

This event launches a series of CRL programming this year on government information. A Charleston preconference session on November 6 is devoted to trends in commercial distribution (The New Marketplace for Government Information), and government information and government records will be the main focus of the CRL Council of Voting Members Collections Forum in April 2014.
