The papers presented at a workshop on local documents sponsored by the Illinois State Library and the Illinois Library Association are published in this issue of "Illinois Libraries". The local documents under consideration are the publications of local governmental agencies and their subunits and any other items appropriate to a local history collection. The papers discuss the reasons for collecting such documents; the need for freedom of information at the local level; interlibrary cooperation with reference to local documents; and the location, acquisition, processing, and use of the documents within a library. The results of a questionnaire study of local documents in Illinois libraries are presented in tabular form. A 15-item bibliography and a directory of municipal reference libraries and state and federal depository libraries in Illinois are included. (PF)
