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

Guides of the Week: Georgia and Russia

Because they’ve been in the news, I’m highlighting the Georgia and Russia country guides produced by the Government Publications Library at the University of Colorado at Boulder, that have just been posted to the ALA GODORT Handout Exchange.

Both guides are broken down into the following sections:

  • Government (direct from country) Information
  • Country Profiles
  • Articles & Databases
  • Diplomatic Relations
  • Health
  • Peacekeeping & Military Information
  • Resources in the Catalog
  • Related Topics

I believe these guides will be of use to anyone interested in background to the current conflict. I suspect it could be a boon to any middle-school and higher grade history class.

So check out the guides above. Then see what else the Handout Exchange has to offer. If you’re a docs librarian with a resource guide, share it by linking it to the Exchange.
