Description: From Library Journal
Hernon (U.S. Government on the Web, Professional Media, LJ 10/1/99) and his coauthors have produced a valuable addition to the literature on federal government information. Their comprehensive overview traces the history of U.S. government information policy from its first mention in the Constitution through the changes instituted since the terrorist attacks of September 11. Government publishing is also well covered, from the first publications of the Congress up to today's transition to electronic information delivery and services. Each chapter includes source notes; additional information (including review and practice questions) is provided on an accompanying web site (accessible via and CD-ROM (not available for review). There is the occasional bit of outdated information (e.g., concerning Patent and Trademark Depository Library collections) and apparent author biases toward particular policies and their outcomes, but these shortcomings do not detract from the volume's overall value. Although other works have discussed various aspects of government information, this survey offers the best introduction to the topic for historians, political scientists, teachers, and librarians. For every collection with a substantial focus on government information.
