How to Locate Useful Government Publications. How to Do It Series, Number 11.
Wronski, Stanley P.
The major emphasis of this pamphlet is on helping teachers obtain government publications to use in their social studies classrooms. These publications have much to offer to social studies teachers due to their inexpensiveness, reliability, and availability; their civic value which is high; and their provision of an opportunity for teachers to train their students in the use of primary source material. Sources of information are given for locating federal government publications including government bibliographical sources and professional periodical literature listings which refer to government publications. In addition, annotations are provided on federal government agencies, their inexpensive or free government publications and services that are particularly significant and useful for social studies teachers. Regional and local branches of federal agencies are listed. Information is also included on how to locate local and state government publications. References are made to publications of international organizations and to audio-visual materials available from the federal government. Related documents are SO 005 979 through SO 006 000. (SJM)
