30 Clicks: Information Tools at Your Fingertips
This week: Finding US Government Information on the Web
Thursday, April 21 @ 12:15 pm in LIB 103
The US Government produces huge amounts of useful, and reliable, information. Did you know that 24.3 lbs = the per capita consumption of candy by Americans in 2009 (US Census)? Did you know that each year Americans use more than 100 billion plastic bags? And a scientist is working on a process to convert those bags into rechargeable battery parts? (US Dept of Energy). You just need to know where to look. This session will highlight specific government web sites and how to search government documents to find fun informational tidbits and solid statistics.
