Dorothy Ormes, MLS, MEd, is associate professor and government information/instruction librarian at Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR.
"Free Government e-Resources for Youth: Inform, Inspire, and Activate offers an avenue for librarians to teach youth about the basics of democracy and how government works. . . . Ormes [offers] a thorough primer on available online resources and takes a lot of the guesswork out of where to start looking for educational materials related to government information. Free Government e-Resources for Youth serves as a convenient handbook that is easy to mine for ideas and to put into use as needed." - The Library Quarterly "The entirety of the book can be used by librarians helping youth, and the vast majority of the book can be used independently by youth who want to research on their own. In the age of cutbacks and limited funding for education, books like Free Government e-Resources for Youth can be quite handy for librarians and researchers alike." - VOYA
