This session seeks to anchor government information librarianship to place, both practically and theoretically. Presenters will discuss their efforts to engage with regionally-produced government information and reflect on the ways in which this work re-localizes their respective libraries, simultaneously connecting users to regionally-significant materials while contributing to stories of place.

Natalie Bond is the Government Information Librarian & Head of Information and User Services at the University of Montana’s Mansfield Library. She also serves as the regional Federal Depository Library Program coordinator for the state of Montana. When Natalie is not ruminating on the state of American collective memory, she can be found running long miles on Montana trails with her dog, Olive.

Jim Kammerer is the Government Information Librarian at Montana State Library who works with state agencies and Montana libraries to provide permanent public access to state government information intended for public distribution. Outside of work, he enjoys being with his family, amateur radio, gardening, and trail running in the Scratch Gravel Hills.
