One clear benefit of having government information in electronic format is the ability to quickly and easily tie government documents to other material. With the large number of news stories involving government activities or government resources, tying government documents to news media seems like a natural.
Two state libraries that I know of are taking this natural step:
New Mexico appears to highlight documents while Washington highlights the news stories. Both look like good approaches to me and I hope both institutions get a lot of thanks and praise for their creativity!
While I know of a few universities who provide this kind of service, these are the first I’ve seen from State libraries. Anyone else have an example?
