Description:

    This webinar illustrates 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. Viewers will learn a variety of tools and strategies that were vital in doing the research.
