Trying to keep up with the government information available online can be a fun process of discovery, but really – who has the time to go wade through the endless .gov sites on the market today? There are a ton of gorgeous .govs out there, so we’ve plucked out just a few that are either especially-helpful or lesser-known. Learn about some of the (sometimes surprising) .gov resources available to help you help your patrons.

About The Wild, Wild Web Series:
When it comes to reference, today’s Internet is truly a vast ocean of possibilities. And, like many things less-censored, it’s pretty much a free-for-all: a place where lone resources hunt, swim, swagger, swarm, dip, dive, and doggy-paddle. But there are few things librarians love more than a fishing expedition. In the Wild, Wild Web webinar series, you might discover a tiny, new species, or rediscover the catch you forgot in the cooler two years ago (dusty bookmarks, anyone?).
There are many fish in the sea, but we’ll keep it tidy: just a small selection plucked from those swirling waters so that you can sample the frazzling, dazzling array of helpful resources on the web.
