FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Gov Docs 2.0 Resources & Presentation

This will be my last entry as your Blogger of the Month for March. I have learned so much about government information and I have enjoyed learning from all of you as well. Thank you for letting me, a newbie in Government Documents, be a part of all this! But this isn’t a goodbye, as I’ll post my musings every now and again here at FGI. I’m addicted now, so you are not going to get rid of me so easily. *wink*

Before I sign off, I want to let you know about my department’s wiki page that I am working on (more will be added as the years go by, I’m sure) on “Gov Docs 2.0” Resources as well as a link to my presentation that I gave at the Louisiana Library Association. If you would like to contribute information to the Gov Docs 2.0 Resources page, let me know. I can give you a password to access just that part of the wiki. So far, the page contains mostly Web 2.0 resources but I would like to include examples of other Government Depositories using Web 2.0 technologies too. I know the GODORT wiki , the Ning Library 2.0 and Government Library 2.0 group, and here at FGI there are some pages and directories about this topic too (I’ll link to them from my wiki).

If Gov Docs 2.0 interests you, be sure to attend the Docs 2.0 pre-conference at ALA Anaheim! I wish I could be there, but I’ll be busy being an “Emerging Leader” that day at the EL 2008 Workshop. If I could split myself in half in order to attend both, I would!

Ok, one more shameless self promotion before I go…feel free to stop by and read my depository’s blog, Gov Docs on the Bayou. I welcome all comments and discussion!

Until next time,
Rebecca Blakeley
