Learn how K-16 students can access and use free government documents online on next week’s NCompass Live webinar on Wednesday, November 2, at 10am CT.
Too often government documents are overlooked as sources for K-16 students. But for schools with limited resources, documents are the perfect place to find information. Best of all, they are freely accessible with an internet connection. Calvin T. Ryan Library is a selective depository in the Federal Depository Library Program and has been for over 60 years! This presentation will focus on the variety of ways to locate these treasures. Some sites are grade-specific! There will also be a libguide of Nebraska and federal documents your library can share to help your students find information. Are you up for the challenge?
Presenter: Rochelle Hunt Reeves, Associate Professor, Curriculum/OER/Government Documents Librarian, Calvin T. Ryan Library, University of Nebraska at Kearney.
