  • Speaker: Robert Lopresti; Librarian for Government Information; Huxley College of the Environment, Maps, and Canadian-American Studies; Wilson Library; Western Washington University
  • Learning outcomes: This webinar will illustrate how an experienced Government information librarian used public and private resources to write a book about Government statistics. “When Women Didn’t Count,” published by Praeger in 2017, is the first attempt to look at the changing roles and status of a segment of the country’s population through their appearance in Federal statistical publications. Participants will learn a variety of tools and strategies that were vital in doing the research.
  • Expected level of knowledge for participants: Some knowledge of Government information sources is necessary. The greater the level, the more users will get out of it..
