Booklist Review

Described in promotional material as a "portable search engine," this guide through the maze of official government Web sites is patterned after the U.S. Government Manual. The companion Web site at [http://www.fedweb.com] provides updates and links directly to every site that is listed.


Choice Review

Until recently, government publications were housed in depository libraries across the US, but with the advent of the Internet, the federal government opened its cache of information to the public via the World Wide Web. Calling on more than 20 years' experience with government publications and an avid interest in the Internet, compiler Andriot has created this handy, useful guide to this federal information, and to the electronic companion Web site FedWeb . Although the explosion of government data is being made available, the changing, ephemeral, chaotic, and disorganized character of the Web renders access problematic and this source therefore valuable. Following the format of United States Government Manual, arrangement is by departmental agency, with legislative, judicial, and executive agencies grouped and other agencies listed alphabetically. The intent is to make text browsable by agency in order to allow readers to explore the monumental breadth and scope of available publications. This comprehensive, authoritative directory provides over 900 annotated entries with reference numbers, agency or departmental names in boldface, URLs or Web addresses in italics, brief descriptions of functions or missions, and links to a multitude of Web sites. Only agencies with "gov" or "mil" domain addresses are included to ensure reliability. Updates are necessary and are offered at the Web site above. Recommended for government collections. M.
