The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library and Indiana University Kokomo Library are collaborating to celebrate our nation’s independence.
Through the month of July at KHCPL South, 1755 E. Center Rd., you are invited to come and peruse three patriotic book displays created to celebrate our nation’s independence. The three displays are a unique collaboration of two local libraries to highlight government information for residents of Howard and surrounding counties.
KHCPL, in collaboration with the Indiana University Kokomo Library, is displaying a selection of books on the founding of the United States and government publications to demonstrate the varied subjects and types of information the US Government Printing Office makes available through the Federal Depository Library Program, of which the IU Kokomo Library represents the Congressional 5th District.
Since 2000, 90 percent of government information has become freely available in electronic format, and the librarians at KHCPL can help you find it! To find other books on the American Revolution and the founding of the U.S., search the KHCPL Catalog at www.KHCPL.org.
As a member of the Federal Depository Library Program, the IU Kokomo Library provides access to government information. Electronic government information can be found through IU Kokomo Library’s Government Documents portal at iuk.libguides.com/govdocsguide.
Print resources in the government document collection may be found using IUCAT, accessible from the IU Kokomo Library website at www.iuk.edu/library.
Watch for future collaborations between two of your best resources for information: KHCPL and the IU Kokomo Library.
