Abstract

An urgent topic of conversation among government documents librarians today is the need for training, in both the use of federal depository collections and the provision of reference services for these collections. Two trends that have pushed this issue to the forefront in recent years are the proliferation of electronic resources and the fact that, in many institutions, government documents reference services are being integrated into general reference service points. This selective bibliography focuses on recent articles that present a substantially detailed account of training and educational programs for everything from ongoing professional development training for staff to course‐integrated instruction for students, and will serve as a resource for librarians involved in these educational efforts.
