We have a special treat this month, as the Government Documents Librarians from UC Berkeley have agreed to be FGI’s collaborative guest bloggers for June. They normally hang out at their own govinfo blog. The group includes Jim Church, Harrison Dekker, Tim Dennis, Glenn Gillespie, Susana Hinojosa, and Jesse Silva (full bios are here). I’m really excited about this collaborative experiment!
