Ensuring that citizens have the government information they need is the goal of this new guide and CD ROM.

In this sequel to his previous book, Finding Government Information on the Internet (1994), Maxymuk focuses on the sweeping changes brought by the shift of federal, state, local, foreign, and international government information from print to electronic format.

You"ll find tips for using GPO ACCESS and other government, academic, and commercial aids to help you easily and quickly find the best, most current government information online.

Compiled by subject area experts, each chapter begins with an overview of the most useful Web sites. Entries include the URL, a brief description of the site, and highlights designed to answer most commonly asked questions. Agency Web site maps and lists of state agencies are also provided.

Information and instant access to recommended Web sites are provided in 2 subject areas:

* Legislation and Regulation

* Public Policy and the Census
* International Relations
* Business and Labor
* Banking and Taxation
* Health and Medicine
* The Environment
* Science and Technology
* Education
* Arts and Humanities
* Transportation, Travel, and Recreation

Appendices speed access to frequently requested information in three areas: government libraries, statistical sites, and sites for kids and educators. Two indexes, one by Web site and one by topic, round out this useful reference tool.

A CD ROM provides one click access to 2,200 unique federal government Web sites and over 1,200 state sites.
