Thirty years have passed since the Notable Government Documents selection process was first introduced. An initiative of the Government Documents Roundtable (GODORT) of the American Library Association (ALA), it was designed to recognize excellence and raise awareness of information resources produced by all levels of government and promote their use. Responsibility for compilation of the annual list falls to the Notable Documents Panel, a part of ALA/GODORT’s Publications Committee. The Notable Documents process has stood the test of time and, like government publishing itself, has adapted to the 21st century. This year’s list includes titles on cultural heritage, globalism, diversity and gender equality, lifelong learning, and the environment. Nearly all are available online, most with no-cost print counterparts.
