This year the Government Documents Round Table is celebrating its 50th anniversary. GODORT was founded in 1972 to be a dynamic forum where information professionals can learn, discuss, advocate for, and create scholarship on and about government information from all levels of government both foreign and domestic.
In honor of this anniversary, the 2022 GODORT ALA Annual Juried Program looks back at a government document, the Kerner Commission Report, that is over 50 years old, but whose impact is still being felt today. These resources provide some background reading on the report.
