Bruce Samuelson ( from Bernan will be at the IDTF meeting for the ALA
Annual Conference in Washington, DC. He invites attendees of the conference to stop by Bernan’s
exhibit in Booth No. 1608.
New Publications
New, updated editions of the IT Information Library (ITIL) Series from The Stationery Office (UK)
have just been published and are available from Bernan.
Bernan Press is co-publishing the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). NAICS is
a volume of official industry codes used by businesses, libraries, and other establishments and
individuals to complete tax returns, grant requests, and fill out other forms and to improve analyses and
comparisons of different industries. NAICS officially replaced the U.S. Standard Industrial
Classification (SIC) system in 1997. It provides a consistent system of economic analysis across the
three NAFTA nations. NAICS also facilitates the collection, analysis, and dissemination of industrial
statistics; these statistics are used by all kinds of businesses, government policy analysts, academics and
researchers, and the general public. Published every five years, the 2007 edition of NAICS was released
in late May, and supersedes the 2002 edition.
In September 2007, two new books will be published by Bernan Press. Since a significant body of
international information is found in federal government documents, there will be considerable interest
among IDTF members in The State of Public Access to Federal Government Information, the longawaited book by Patrice McDermott, who many of us may know from her work for the American
Library Association. Patrice is currently the Director of, and she is one of the
foremost experts on federal government information issues and privacy policy concerns.
Bernan Press is also publishing a reference book entitled Beyond the Internet, written by Barbara
Chernow (who edited the Columbia Encyclopedia), which cautions against the inclination of many
students and researchers today to rely exclusively upon the Internet, and explores through interesting
anecdotes the value and unforeseen rewards of more traditional research methods.

Starting with Volume 78, published in February 2007, Bernan is collaborating with international trade
experts to produce enhanced editions of the WTO Dispute Settlement Decisions (DSD). Two new
editors for this series are Mark D. Nguyen and Felipe Berer who are Senior Trade Policy Advisors at
Bryan Cave LLP. They assist clients in the analysis of cross-border trade rules and trade agreements,
including the implications of U.S. bilateral and regional trade agreements and WTO rules. Mr. Berer has
also assisted in trade remedy investigations, WTO proceedings and trade policy developments in the
United States and Latin America.

Canadian Official Publications
In January 2007, the Canadian Library and Archives agency (LAC) expanded its legal deposit
which is described as “Canadian publishers are required to send two copies of all the books, pamphlets,
serial publications, microforms, maps, spoken word sound recordings, videorecordings, electronic
publications issued in physical formats (CD-ROM, CD-I, computer diskette, etc.), and one copy of
musical sound recordings, multi-media kits and on-line publications they publish, to Library and
Archives Canada,” to include maps and publications available over the internet. This was done to stay
abreast of the significant and rapid changes in publication, access, and distribution of government
The Depository Service Program (DSP) conducted a Client Satisfaction Survey in 2006 “… to assess
and obtain quantitative measurements of client satisfaction and performance…” with the program.
Overall, 79% of the respondents were satisfied with the program but identified opportunities for
improvement related to guidance in obtaining government publications outside the DSP system,
improved search capabilities on the web page, improved Customer Service response time of Customer
Service, and others. The Executive Summary is available at:
One of the outcomes of this survey was the creation of the Depository Quick Reference Guide sent to
depository libraries and available at: According to the DSP, “…the Guide provides
an overview of the Program in terms of the services we provide and the role you play in ensuring the
success of the Program.” Beyond the nuts and bolts of the depository system operations and instructions,
a brief history is especially interesting. The program began in 1927 and now has 49 full depositories
and 963 selective depositories in Canada and around the world to which it distributed more than half a
million hard copy items in 2006.
At the province and territorial level the Update 2007: Collection and Preservation of Web-Based
Provincial/Territorial Government Publications also addresses the impact of electronic creation and
distribution of materials, see: Since the 2005 report there
has been development in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Nunavut toward the collection of web-based

government information. Also, the LAC conducted a web crawl of provincial and territorial web sites
for approximately three months and is storing the data in a dark archive awaiting future plans for making
these accessible in some manner.
And finally, although this site does not directly offer access to official Canadian government documents,
it is related, relevant, and impressive. The government documents groups of the Canadian Library
Association are making a substantial amount of material available electronically. See: CANADIAN

EU Washington Office:
Council of the EU:
Major changes have just come to light affecting access to European Union materials in the United
1. The Commission Delegation in Washington, D.C. has completed an agreement to move its entire
physical library collection (the most extensive on EU matters) to the University of Pittsburgh's, Archive
of European Integration (AIE). This digitization project aims to provide open access to historically
important documents and research about the EU. Phil Wilkin, an experienced EU information scholar, is
the driving force. He has been insightful enough to join forces with Barbara Sloan, an award winning
and EU acclaimed information specialist. The physical collection will remain intact and in
controlled access.
2. The Office of the EU Delegation in Washington will maintain a "Public Inquiries” section, where one
can email questions. The library function will remain, but will be dependent on electronic information
only. More information will be forthcoming as to how much help the academics and depository libraries
can expect.

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
On the web: (
FAO currently hosts hundreds of specialized Web sites and systems which support the Organization’s
mandate to raise levels of nutrition, improve agricultural productivity, better the lives of rural
populations and contribute to the growth of the world economy.

All electronic publications on the FAO website are at no-cost ( There is
a fee however for some of the print versions of these publications. Access to FAO databases and
information systems is also free; however, in the case of the statistical database FAOSTAT
( a subscription is required in order to access and display numbers in
Excel of 4000 data elements per database query.
What “4000 data per query” means is that if a database query results yields a number of data greater
than 4000, then a subscription is needed. For example, the following query will most certainly give
results of more than 4000 records (or pieces of data): production of rice from 1999 – 2006 (seven
years) for 400 countries, regions and sub-national units; whereas production of apples in the US for
2000 and 2001 will not be over 4000 data.
FAOSTAT provides access to over 3 million time-series and cross-sectional data relating to food and
agriculture. FAOSTAT contains data for 200 countries and more than 200 primary products and inputs,
just in its core.
The new national version of FAOSTAT, CountrySTAT,
is being implemented in 20 countries and three regions. It offers a two-way bridge amongst sub national,
national, regional and international statistics on food and agriculture.

Human Development Reports
On the web at:
Human Development Reports series is expanding in the overall number published. This is very good news
since this are highly useful publications. HDRs are a matrix of world-wide, regional, national, and subnational reports on a broad array of social and related economic measures, in geography thickly spanning
the globe. It is issued through the United Nations Development Program offices, and is based on research
and analysis done by specialists either in or connected to the area being covered. Since its beginning with
a global report in 1990, this series has become one of the most comprehensive and reliable sources of both
data and narrative information about the population of the earth. Topics range from economic and
environmental data, to gender measures, weapons, water, education, children, poverty, and shelter. A
careful analysis is provided, and in most cases more diverse data given than can be found elsewhere.
There has been recent progress in having more back issues remain on the web in pdf format, a critical issue
since there is almost no paper distribution. So long as titles are on the web, download is free. Global
reports, and some regional, such as the annual series on the Arab world, are available for purchase from
standard publishers, such as Oxford University Press for the global issue.
A remarkable series of publications, not as well known as it should be in the broad range of libraries where
it could be utilized.

Inter-American Development Bank - IDB
On the web:
IDB continues to add interesting and valuable web products to its site.
The Opportunities for the Majority initiative has a page that links from the IDB homepage and includes
information about the Bank’s plan for improving conditions for the Latin American and Caribbean lowincome population. The plan has six priority areas: financial democracy, enterprise compact, basic
infrastructure, housing for the majority, digital connectivity, and identifying the majority. Each priority
area has its own page with links to articles, project descriptions and videos in English.
The information includes an interactive tool called “Mapping the Majority: a Socioeconomic Atlas for
Latin America and the Caribbean”. This gives you the opportunity to choose variables among five of
the priority areas. You may then choose a country and a beautiful graph is shown illustrating the data.
You may print this or download the data into Excel. A tab at the top of the tool allows you to select
either data by income groups or national data.
“Mapping Dead Capital” is also available. This is a map based on ‘extra-legal’ or informal properties
and businesses in the area which are unable to produce clear title or registry. It also represents the
majority of much of the property and businesses in the area. This is very unusual data, and the map may
be printed or a chart produced.
DataGob is the new Governance Indicators database and includes data about the rule of law, democratic
system, public management, market system and socioeconomic indicators. It is not limited to Latin
America and the Caribbean but includes countries from all over the world. It is searchable by region as
well as by country.
The Research homepage has been renamed Knowledge and Data. The search box at the top of the page
will allow searches of all the IDB publications and websites. The Statistics and Tools link on the left
gives access to all the data tools mentioned here as well as others detailed in earlier reports
Finally, one publication that should be mentioned is the Business Resource Guide, available as a pdf on
the website. It details the process of getting a contract to work on Bank projects and includes contact
information as well as explaining timelines and needed documentation.

Readex Customer Service by email at, and by phone at 1-800-243-7694.
FBIS Daily Report, 1974-1996. A complete new online collection of translated foreign broadcasts and
news providing first-hand perspectives on international politics . The Foreign Broadcast Information
Service (FBIS) Daily Report has been the United States' principal record of political and historical open
source intelligence for nearly 75 years. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record,
transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services,
and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Many of these materials are first-hand reports of
events as they occurred. As such, the FBIS Daily Report constitutes a one-of-a-kind archive of
transcripts of foreign broadcasts and news that provides fascinating insight into the second half of the
20th century.
AccessUN. A comprehensive Web-based index of United Nations documents. Developed in
cooperation with the library community, AccessUN serves primarily as an ongoing Web-based index to
more than 500,000 current and archived United Nations documents and publications. AccessUN also
provides the full text or links to the full text of more than 35,000 of these documents and publications.
AccessUN benefits both researchers concerned with international economic, social, cultural and
humanitarian issues as well as Model UN participants preparing resolutions and position papers. Peace
and security, world hunger, human rights, economic development, the environment and atomic energy
are among the many topics addressed in depth by the United Nations.
British Parliamentary Papers. The definitive documents collection of Britain’s ruling body. With the
British Parliamentary Papers from Readex, students and scholars of law, history, government, foreign
studies, economics, sociology and political science can trace the development of the British Parliament,
gain insight into the Parliamentary process and examine the issues and events that affect the British
Commonwealth and the nations of the world. The British Parliamentary Papers collection consists of
four segments: A record of debates in both Houses of Parliament; Proceedings from the House of
Commons; Sessional Papers; and Parliamentary history in the 18th and 19th centuries
UNDP Project Reports. An archive that compliments current project reports online. A retrospective
collection not available online. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a UN
organization formed in 1965 with the merger of the Expanded Programme of Technical Assistance and
the UN Special Fund. The stated goal of UNDP is to build more productive societies and economies in
low-income nations by helping them develop their natural resources and human capabilities. UNDP
Project Reports (1972 to 1998) enable researchers to examine the results of development projects
undertaken in these low-income nations and emerging economies. The reports of UNDP-funded projects
are executed through a variety of prestigious agencies and organizations, including ILO, World Bank,
Beginning in 1999, current UNDP Project Reports became available via the Internet directly from
UNDP. However, Readex offers a retrospective collection of UNDP Project Reports from 1972 to 1998
on microfiche. This collection is helpful to international development researchers, individuals interested
Government Documents Round Table in the American Library Association

Agency Liaison Reports – Page 9
in international business opportunities, consultants, students and other researchers needing information
in the global areas of public policy, health, agriculture, technology, engineering, economics, education,
communications and transportation. Readex’s retrospective collection complements the current
collection online and provides unique documents that are very difficult to obtain.
United Nations Documents. Complete UN documentation from its creation to the present. Three
collections of essential UN documentation. Readex’s collections of United Nations Documents and
supporting databases are available from the founding of the United Nations to the present time. These
collections are ideal for researching international issues—from world hunger to world peace—and for
gaining an understanding of international relations as they exist today given the events, issues and trends
chronicled in retrospective portions of the collections. Readex provides United Nations Documents on
durable, space-saving microfiche in three versions:
Comprehensive Collection—contains virtually every document, including “Limited” and
“Restricted” documents, from the main UN bodies: the General Assembly, Security Council,
Economic and Social Council, Secretariat, Trusteeship Council and International Court of
Law Library Collection—features official records and working documents from five of the
six principal organs (Secretariat publications are not included). Also included are documents
from ad hoc and expert committees such as the International Law Commission and the UN
Commission on International Trade Law.
The Abridged Collection—designed for smaller libraries, it includes mastheads and official
records from the General Assembly (regular, special and emergency sessions), the Security
Council, Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council and the International Court
of Justice.
ITDF would especially like to thank Readex for pioneering the international documents workshops they
held in Chester, Vermont for over 20 years. Those workshops were beneficial in helping many
librarians learn about international documents. Readex has continued to support international
documents educational opportunities with their sponsorship of the GODORT preconference on
international documents at the ALA Annual in Washington, D.C. in June, 2007

complete title descriptions not just a few keywords that have been assigned to the publication. This
feature significantly increases the chances of the users being able to locate publications within their
areas of interest. The site currently includes over 41,000 international and governmental publications
that are currently in print and it is updated on a daily basis so you will find the all latest releases.
Books and Series
ILO. Renouf is the official North American distributor for ILO publications and the following new
releases are now available through them:
Since its first edition in 1935-36, the Yearbook of Labour Statistics has established itself as the

the publication attempts to answer are: What are the Impacts on the social and economic security

Wikipedia. When I suggested including something about the Wikipedia entry for TSO in this report,
Brian Tierney, who continues as TSO representative, took a look at the listing details and found
everything up to date and in order. You can find the entry with live footnote links at:
The entry is succinct and contains some extensive links, including one to an entry on Her Majesty’s
Stationery Office.
The TSO entry begins with this note:” The Stationery Office (TSO) is a private British publishing
company that was created in 1996 when the publishing arm of Her Majesty's Stationery Office was
privatised.[1] It retains the contracts for printing British legislation that are a legacy of its former state
ownership[1] and also publishes many other government documents.[2]“
The references include links to what TSO is, and who the clients and partners are. This astounding fact
is included in the main text: “It publishes more than 15,000 titles each year, making it the largest
publisher in the UK by volume.[1]
TSO Offices. TSO offices are located in UK centers of legislation and throughout the UK. One of the
titles my library purchased this year was published by TSO Scotland:
The Nature of the Cairngorms: Diversity in a Changing Environment, edited by Philip Shaw and Des
Thompson. (TSO and Scottish Natural Heritage: Edinburgh, 2006.)
It is a beautifully illustrated review of natural history for the Cairngorms area of Scotland, the location
of Britain’s largest national park. 35 authors present an up-to-date review of the area’s plants, animals,
habitats, geology and landforms. The main audience for the book is conservation professionals, but the
photography is exceptional for all readers. See OCLC 70686744 for details.

United Nations Depository Library Program
On the web:
On March 20, 2007 the United Nations Publications Board increased the annual fees for UN depositories.
The changes for depository libraries in developed countries are as follows: Regular depositories, which
will not receive masthead documents or Official Records in print, will now pay $1,000, an increase of
Libraries that choose to receive printed masthead documents and Official Records must pay a print plus
deposit fee of $1,750 (it had been $1,400). This print plus deposit option will include the verbatim
records of Security Council meetings, which were previously available only via purchase.
These increases, the first since 1996, are very modest and take into account the concerns that IDTF
members have expressed in recent years. The announcement on the Dag Hammarskjöld Library web
site states that “the UN wishes that certain libraries maintain complete print collections and will
continue to provide printed documents to those free [depository] libraries that wish to receive them.”
It thus appears that depositories wishing to receive masthead documents and Official Records in print
will be able to do so for the foreseeable future and possibly in perpetuity.

United Nations Human Settlements Programme – HABITAT
On the web:
The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-HABITAT (UNCHS), is the United Nations
agency for human settlements. It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and
environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all. Cities
are now home to half of humankind, and sustainable urbanization is one of the most pressing challenges
facing the global community in the 21st century.
The main documents outlining the mandate of the organization are the Vancouver Declaration on
Human Settlements, Habitat Agenda, Istanbul Declaration on Human Settlements, the Declaration on
Cities and Other Human Settlements in the New Millennium, and Resolution 56/206.
UN-HABITAT runs two major worldwide campaigns – the Global Campaign on Urban Governance,
and the Global Campaign for Secure Tenure. Through these campaigns and by other means, the agency
focuses on a range of issues and special projects which it helps implement. This includes the Cities
