In the spirit of the festive season, GIOPS (Government Information and Official Publications) has decided to give the gift of blog to everyone!  But what is GIOPS, you may ask?  The GIOPS group within the IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) family focuses on information produced by governments, intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).  In the spirit of connecting people with information, we seek to promote awareness and discover of the variety of documents and resources produced by governments around the world as well as IGOs and NGOs.

GIOPS produces a number of publications that are informative and instructive.  Even if you can’t fly to Helsinki or Singapore to join our meetings, you can read our minutes online.  If you work with government documents or are interested in free access to information and government accountability, consider joining our section to network and stay informed of global information issues.

This blog will seek to disseminate information on IFLA and GIOPS as well as issues of interest in the realm of governmental information as well as information produced by IGOs and NGOs.
