About GIO

What is GIO: Ask a Librarian?

Through Government Information Online (GIO) you can ask government information librarians questions on almost any subject from aardvarks to zygomycosis.

GIO is a free online information service supported by a number of libraries in the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s Federal Depository Library Program. Many are also official depository libraries for other types of governments and public agencies.

Who is answering my question?

Government information librarians with a specialized knowledge of agency information dissemination practices — as well as expertise in how to use government information products, resources and or publications — answer all the questions submitted to GIO. These librarians are dedicated to helping users meet their government information needs.
