New Project!

     I just completed a tough final exam and a not-so-tough final project.  The exam was tough because I had to answer reference questions within a short time.  I am not a "grace under pressure" gal.  The school's new requirement that a B- is passing and a C+ is failing might hurt me this semester.  Until now I have been an A student.  

     The final project is a user guide.  Government Sources of Legal Information lists a number of FREE United States federal government  law-related sources.  Most are online, several are for mobile devices, and others are in print.

      Hey, Library Students!  Take the LIS567 Government Information course if you can fit it into your schedule.  Who can use this class?  Archivist, educators, librarians in any public setting, and special collections librarians (music, art, etc).  This class has something for EVERYONE regardless of concentration.

     I have a few more assignments to tackle before I meet with some Nissan mud and trail enthusiasts.  Enjoy your day!

Hiatus is Over

     It is time for me to prioritize this blog.  I am finishing a class about government information resources.  I have plenty of websites to share with you in the upcoming weeks.  Please be patient.  Plans include a list of links discussed in past posts.  I cannot turn this into a large task, school is not over yet!  While you are waiting I want to share a website that is a treasure trove of free information:, Government made easy (, is the official web portal to United States Government.  It provides easy-to-navigate access to forms, publications, and information regarding nearly every aspect of a person's life in this country.   Topics include:
  • Government Jobs
  • Unclaimed Money
  • Immigration & Citizenship
  • Consumer Protection
  • Travel
  • Financial Aid
The above is a small sample of topics.  Explore this website.  You may find sources or services you did not realize you needed.
