I spend a good deal of time scouring newspapers and Web sites like Docuticker (RSS Feed) and UN Pulse (RSS Feed) in order to add digital government documents to my library’s collections. Sometimes I have the url cataloged; or if I think the document is particularly in danger of disappearing, I’ll upload them to the Internet Archive’s govt documents collection. Below are a few that I’ve come across in my digitravels recently.
At the upcoming International Documents Taskforce (IDTF) meeting at ALA Annual Conference (GODORT conference schedule here), I’m giving a short presentation about digital collections. I’d really like to hear how/if others are doing digital collection development either randomly or as a matter of course. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts, ideas, and hopes. Please include any information you care to share — what you do, how you do it, if you have favorite haunts/Websites etc.
