Government Information Collections and Services in the Social Sciences: The Subject Specialist Integration Model. Cheney, D. The Journal of Academic Librarianship, 32(3):303--312, 2006.
abstract   bibtex   
Use of government information by social sciences researchers has not increased since the 1980's. This article argues that academic libraries must begin to focus less on government organization and function and begin to collect government information and offer reference and instruction services within the context of disciplines. Subject librarians are better positioned to develop collections and provide reference and instruction services within today's academic library. This change in focus—from governments to disciplines—holds greater promise for increasing the use of government information by social sciences researchers.
