Chat Reference Libraries

February 10, 2018

Chat Reference Libraries
https://liswiki.org/wiki/Chat_reference_libraries

This list is for libraries with some form of synchronous or chat reference services. An exhaustive list of libraries offering other virtual reference services is nowadays akin to a list of libraries that offer telephone service; to search the thousands of library sites which employ e-mail links or simple web feedback forms, see Libweb. Groups of libraries broader than the individual institutions (individual libraries, libraries within the same university system, or public library county branch system) are shown in bold. Listed by country, state, and then alphabetically by institution (or service name for cooperatives). Vendor information and other notes are listed when possible.

United States Government Manual

United States Government Manual
https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collection.action?collectionCode=GOVMAN&browsePath=2017+Edition+%28August%29%3BGOVMAN-2017-08-02%3Bthumbnails%5C%2Fgovman2017.jpg&isCollapsed=true&leafLevelBrowse=false&ycord=0

As the official handbook of the Federal Government, The United States Government Manual provides information on the agencies of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches. It also includes information on quasi-official agencies; international organizations in which the United States participates; and boards, commissions, and committees. The Manual begins with reprints of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. A typical agency description includes a list of officials heading major operating units, a summary statement of the agency’s purpose and role in the Federal Government, a brief history of the agency, including its legislative or executive authority, and a description of its programs and activities, and information, addresses, and phone numbers to help users locate detailed information on consumer activities, contracts and grants, employment, publications, and other matters of public interest. The Manual is published as a special edition of the Federal Register (see 1 CFR 9.1). Its focus is on programs and activities. Persons interested in detailed organizational structure, the regulatory documents of an agency, or Presidential documents should refer to the Federal Register or one of its other special editions. FDsys contains the U.S. Government Manual for 1995-96 and all subsequent editions to the present. The online version and electronic publication of The Manual is available annually to the Public. Documents are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files, and more recent years are available in XML. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
