    The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association and the American Library Association Government Documents Round Table welcome you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.   While most of the attention is focused on the actions (or lack thereof) of the U.S. Congress, the nation’s state legislatures are increasingly deciding the issues that affect citizens most directly, including voting rights, access to health care, and education. These legislative bodies vary greatly, ranging from full-time professional legislatures to part-time institutions with limited staff, and their websites reflect these differences. This webinar will focus on researching state legislation and laws, including navigating state legislative websites that are not necessarily designed with the average citizen in mind.  It will also highlight alternative sources of state legislative information and strategies for ferreting out additional information and context on state legislation. We will meet online on Thursday, May 27th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). 

    Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://ala-events.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_m78WrDE5QoihbUEEOkUmJw.

    Presenter: Jennifer Horne (she/her) is the Business, Economics, and Government Information Librarian at the University of Kentucky. In this role, she supports the schools of business, public policy and administration, and diplomacy. She also serves as the library's forward facing contact for government information. Prior to joining UK, she spent more than twenty years in public policy research and legislative affairs for organizations that represent state and local officials, including the Council of State Governments, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police. She earned her Master’s in Information Science from the University of Tennessee, a Master’s in Legislative Affairs from George Washington University, and a Bachelor’s degree in politics and Spanish from Washington & Lee University.

    We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page at https://nclaonline.org/Help!-Webinars.

    With more U.S. states — and all of Canada — legalizing recreational and medicinal cannabis use, and the global cannabis market expected to reach 90.4 billion USD by 2026 (360iResearch), librarians and other information professionals have to use innovative methods and strategies for supporting cannabis-based businesses and entrepreneurs with their research needs. On May 27 from 1-4:30 pm Eastern, the Entrepreneurship and Libraries Conference will bring together public and academic librarians and information professionals from across North America to examine best practices for supporting the informational needs of cannabis entrepreneurs. The workshop will be free and online. Registration will be available by early May.
