Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents ... The United States Congressional Serial Set ...15577 Volumes and Counting!

Wednesday, January 13, 2016 - 12:00pm


The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us all do better reference work by increasing our familiarity with government information resources, and by discovering the best strategies for navigating them.

Wake up! While inventorying this monotonously bound iconic collection may be better for fighting insomnia than counting sheep, the content in the "sheep-bound set" might keep you awake.  Seriously... this webinar will explore the depth and breath of information available in the United States Congressional Serial Set, while we also consider how its history both hinders and enables our ability to discover and access nearly 200 years of government information.

Carmen Orth-Alfie is  the Coordinator of Government Information Services and Engagement at the University of Kansas Libraries.  Her Federal Depository Library work experiences spans over three decades.  She shelved the print Serial Set volumes as a student and now as Regional Coordinator,  promotes discovery and access using various electronic editions of the Serial Set.
