In the age of e-publishing and open data, government information and records are being exposed in intriguing new ways. More government-generated data and content is openly accessible on the Web than ever before, disseminated directly by government agencies, aggregated and scraped by a variety of applications , and occasionally “exposed” by third parties like WikiLeaks and news media organizations. At the same time publishers and aggregators are changing their game to provide value-enhancing platforms, tools, contextual information, and even analysis services along with historical and contemporary content.

The CRL pre-conference will bring together publishers of government information such as East View Information Service, ProQuest, Sage Publications, and Statista, together with specialists and library collections managers to speculate on where these trends are leading. Some of the questions the session will address:

  • How has the packaging and marketing of government information changed in the past five years and where is it going?
  • What value do the commercial publishers add to the raw government information and data in the form of analysis and tools, and at what cost?
  • How are new media and methodologies driving novel approaches to delivery of government content?
  • What are the potential challenges for researchers, owing to the new trends for distribution of government information?
