Won’t Get Fooled Again: Day 19

Now that the Senate is close to a vote on the stimulus bill — and we all know what a slugfest the conference committee is going to be as the two Congressional chambers work through their differences — I think this could be another one of those “teaching moments” for our communities, let of course by government information librarians. Blogs are good, guides are good; but how about if a collection of public libraries and academic libraries banded together to put on a one or two hour program the describes the various intricacies of the legislation and how folks can get the information from the web. This can be done, considering how much energy we put into explaining tax forms and how to find ancestors.

See you Day 20.
