Reference: FEDLINK Posts Updated Version of U.S. Federal Government Library Directory

A couple of days ago the Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) posted an updated edition of the directory of U.S. Federal Government libraries that they compile and maintain with the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress.

The directory contains information (often with direct links to the library) for more than 1,000 federal government libraries and information centers.

A map version of the directory (plus background info) is available online (Firefox only) . It appears that this version hasn’t been updated with changed/new data as of August 10th.
