Reference: BrowseTopics.gov Relaunched, Find/Access U.S. Web Resources Using This Directory

News that a resource we use a lot (browsing/serendipity can still be a powerful tool) has been relaunched.

BrowseTopics.gov is a hierarchically organized directory of U.S. government resources from the GPO and Oklahoma St. University.

John Dowgiallo at FDLP News has details about what’s new.

With help from summer intern, Greg Gamel, the site features a new template design, search engine friendly URLs, and upgraded backend components.

Since 2002, OSU’s Browse Topics has provided the public with topical pathways to Government information. Listings are maintained by volunteer, professional librarians.

Direct to BrowseTopics.gov.

BrowseTopics includes a web page and RSS feed of new listings.
