Guide to Popular U.S. Government Publications: 1995-1996. Fifth Edition.
Hoffmann, Frank W.; Wood, Richard J.
This biennial publication identifies and describes 1,500 of the most popular and useful federal documents (monographs, journals, maps, posters, pamphlets, and media kits) for students, educators, and lay citizens. Taking up where the last edition left off, it covers titles from 1995 and 1996 with a few classics from previous years and a select number of periodicals from 1997. Organized by subject, the entries provide complete bibliographic data--a bibliographic description, issuing agency, SuDocs number, GPO ordering information--and an annotation. The authors have streamlined their approach in this edition, dropping unnecessary and highly technical topics and titles in lieu of more general and practical publications. (Contains a publications catalogs appendix, a title index and a subject index.) (AEF)
