Library Journal has just published “Notable Government Documents of 2012: Looking Back, Moving Ahead.” Every year a panel of judges from the ALA’s Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) receive submissions and compile a list of notable state and local-, Federal-, and international documents — including links to and distributors for all of the documents. Check out the amazingly diverse topics covered by govt documents including bees, FOIA, the space shuttle, zombies (yes zombies!!), CA high speed rail, birds and dragonflies and damselflies (oh my!), Documents.OK.gov, cannabis, water and many more. Great job by the community and the committee. Every library should have all of these items in their collections at the very least.
FYI, The 2013 process will soon begin. You too can submit your favorite new documents to committee.
