I have talked about specific federal government blogs before: Gov Gab, Dipnote (State Dept.), and Evolution of Security (Transportation Security Admin.), but the list of government blogs is longer than the last time I checked, and now includes several military blogs, such as America’s Marines Blog, The Obama White House blog, and cultural blogs, such as the Smithsonian Institution blogs (yep, there are several to choose from!).
The Library of Congress not only has a blog, it tweets too… follow it at http://twitter.com/librarycongress. And there’s more of the government on Twitter than you’d guess, I’ll bet. Check out http://twitter.com/dotgov, http://twitter.com/nasa, http://twitter.com/nihforhealth, http://twitter.com/National_Ag_Lib, http://twitter.com/femainfocus, and http://twitter.com/usepagov.
Good grief. Who has time to read all this?! But if you’re interested in something your government is doing, there are no excuses for being uninformed since there are so many ways to keep in touch now.
The University Library is a federal depository with many federal, state, local, and international documents on a variety of current and relevant issues available to you in print, microfiche, CD-ROM, and electronically. Come check out your government at the University Library!
