More than 90 percent of this edition contains new material. The focus on government Web sites is interwoven into the traditional documents knowledge base: genres of government documentation, access options, and agency concentrations. It includes electronic resources, publications, maps, audiovisuals, archival collections and museums, as well as some of the personalities, events, and ironies behind them. Chapters feature search and access tips, quick-reference tables, information boxes, and illustrations.
