In this expanded and updated version of her highly acclaimed 1986 first edition (invaluable--Wilson Library Bulletin; highly recommended--VOYA; invaluable resource for obtaining materials--School Library Media Quarterly), Carol Smallwood provides access to thousands of free materials for classroom and library use. Sources (addresses, phone numbers) include government, businesses, and nonprofit organizations, whichever offer the best access to the most current information.
Grouped by broad topics (business and finance; consumer affairs; environment; government and legal affairs; library and archive usage; travel and geography; multiresource agencies; and health), the sources were chosen for their usefulness to educators. A detailed subject index is included.
