Looking Back, Moving On: 2008 Best Notable Government Documents
Church, Jim
Library Journal, v134 n9 p34-38 May 2009
If nothing else, 2008 was an eventful year for government information. People witnessed one of the most dramatic Presidential elections in U.S. history, the largest global economic meltdown since the Great Depression, and fundamental changes in the role of the federal government. As always, government information reflects the times people live in. This article presents a list of best notable government documents in 2008. The list includes documents on the environment, U.S. and state government history, and a fascinating array of international publications on Africa, global development, and climate change. The selection of federal historical documents is particularly strong, with stories of the CIA, U.S. Army Nurse Corps, and black Americans in Congress, among others.
