Abstract

A common misconception surrounding the government information field is that everything is available online. Surprise, it’s not! Of course, us government documents librarians know that already. While GPO is making an effort to put more and more items online, they suffer the same financial and staffing difficulties that the rest of the library world does. That’s where digital projects, such as the one at the Earl K. Long Library (University of New Orleans), come in. Our Federal Documents section is in the process of scanning U.S. Hearings from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. So far, we have digitized over 600 hearings. Come learn about our process for choosing and scanning these less available items, as well as how you can use our database to help users at your library.
