Gov Docs in the Real World

My intent is to provide a place to document the progress we're making (or not making) in replacing the 3 million maps, aerial photographs, and government documents that were damaged or destroyed in the 2004 Hamilton Library flood.

Spending money is hard work!
On Wednesday, we were notified that the University needed to expend a large sum of flood recovery money, and we were asked to create a list of materials to be ordered. We spent three days frantically trying to get quotes from vendors and determining which big-ticket items we could order quickly.
 
The result? We are placing orders for the Congressional Serial Set online, UN databases, UN microfiche, federal microfiche, digital aerial photographs of Hawaii, general reference maps, nautical charts, and UN specialized agency books. Processing the material when it arrives will take a long time without extra help.

New Fish & Wildlife Publications
My friend Marilet Zablan at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service put together a collection of draft recovery plans and other documents for us to replace those lost in the flood. Thanks, MAZ! I'll start processing them today.
