Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents... An Introduction to Researching Canadian Federal Documents

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes 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.
From the use of the metric system to the spelling of catalogue with a “u”, Canada can seem like a foreign country sometimes… That’s because it is! This session will explore the unique structures and institutions of the federal Canadian government as well as the publishing practices and key tools necessary for researching the documentary output of the parliament and government of your neighbour to the North.
Nicholas Worby is the Government Information and Statistics Librarian at the University of Toronto. He provides reference and instruction for domestic and international government documents and statistics. He also oversees collection development for government information and coordinates the University’s web archiving program.
