Continuing Report from ALA GODORT

Continuing with the GODORT Update on Saturday, June 28, 2008:
Jennie Gerke and Kirsten Clark reported on the current status of the Gi21 Project (Government Information in the 21st Century).

This project "is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. Additional support is provided by the University of Colorado at Boulder as well as Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records; New Mexico State Library; Wyoming State Library; and University of Utah."

The goal of the project is to train government documents librarians to educate non-documents library staff on how to work with government information. The first year of the project was devoted to creating training modules; the second is devoted to implementing these modules by offering onsite training sessions.
