Gale Introduces MyGovernment

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, announced MyGovernment, an online subscription-based resource that provides essential information on U.S. elected officials, candidates, and their key issues, and information on how our government functions. It is produced by KnowWho, Inc. and distributed by Gale to the library market.

MyGovernment provides detailed information on U.S. political representatives at the federal, state, and local levels. It enables users to easily locate, research, and contact their elected officials, as well as access background and biographical data, committee assignments, photos, news articles, and even campaign contribution sources. MyGovernment also includes a basic guide to U.S. government including how laws are made in Congress, information on becoming a U.S. citizen, voter information, useful links and websites for additional information and more. It claims to be the only resource that teaches users how government works and brings together and organizes the information needed to become a well-informed voter.

A Spanish user interface will be available for MyGovernment by the end of the year, as well as a web-based reporting tool for librarians. Information on 2012 presidential candidates and campaign finance applets will be available by April 2012, as the election primaries begin and candidates appear on the ballots.
