About

Overview

The United States Government Internet Manual is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who is looking for official U.S. government resources on the Web. The Manual contains more than 2,000 site records that provide descriptions and URLs for each site. Evaluations are given for the most important and frequently sought sites.

U.S. government organization charts are supplemented with URLs for the 16 Cabinet-level departments and agencies, the House and Senate, and the federal judicial branch. Greater detail on the House and Senate are provided in two appendices. Appendix A provides a roster of Congressional Members with Members' Web sites, while Appendix B provides a listing of House and Senate Committees with committee URLs and the names of chairpersons and ranking minority members.

An introductory section on "What to Watch for in 2006" reviews ongoing issues affecting various U.S. government Web resources. This site-by-site overview provides important information relating to the availability, structure, and content of selected sites, along with explanations of how these different situations are expected to change throughout 2006.

Originally published in 2005, this title is now available in eBook format through Gale Virtual Reference Library.
