Government Accounting: Cathy Hartman--University of North Texas Libraries, Denton
Library Journal, v129 n5 pS32 Mar 2004
This article details the work of Cathy Hartman of the University of North Texas Libraries. After 15 years alone in her studio, working as an artist, Cathy Hartman wanted to get out into the world. Career testing suggested librarianship (also military officer because of her penchant for taking charge). Her strong belief that citizens had a right to know what their government was up to made government documents a natural fit, and shortly after receiving her degree she became head of the Government Documents Department at the University of North Texas (LINT) Libraries. She grasped earlier than most that government information in digital form offered both opportunities and perils. It meant that government documents librarians could now "serve the world," but it also meant their duty to preserve information would be challenged as never before.
