Last week I mentioned intergovernmental resources. Let’s not overlook information produced by our own government.
Data.gov lets students (and the rest of us) find government data on a variety of subjects (Devine & Egger-Sider, 2014, p. 49). We searchers can browse topics or type in keywords.
Let’s not forget the Government Publishing Office as well. FDsys allows us to search its digital holdings. A search for “higher education” and “transfer students” yielded 213 results.
Peer-reviewed journals have their place on the information landscape. So do government documents.
