How to Find Government Documents



Part of this month's theme is finding ways to access government documents and data. These resources are especially helpful when doing a research project, allowing you to find reputable information outside of a basic scholarly article search. Along with the websites listed, there will also be internship information posted if available. 

To start off the week, here is how to go about narrowing down Google search results to just government websites.

New DvD: Born into Brothels

Documentary photographer Zana Briski journeyed into Calcutta's underworld to photograph the city's prostitutes. In return, she offered to teach the prostitutes' children the basics of photography so that the kids could document their own lives on the streets of one of the world's poorest cities. The resulting photographs, often astonishing, were exhibited around the world; many of them are seen in this film, which won the Academy Award for best documentary feature in 2005.

But when a gang of bounty hunters, led by the fiendish Deshay (Cameron Mitchell), attempts to round up the freed slaves to bring them back to Louisiana, the two put aside their differences to fight a common enemy.
