by Gary Price

WEBMASTERY column interviews Grace York, coordinator of the University of Michigan Libraries' Government Documents Center. Says that her work to locate and compile Internet resources for students, faculty, and staff of the university as well as the general public, stands at the highest levels of librarian-developed materials. York relates that she also is chair of the Social Sciences Electronic Committee and in that capacity, coordinates purchases of new commercial Web sites and solves connection glitches. Discusses future goals and plans for the Documents Center Web site, including a little restructuring, a better search engine, a sleeker design, and regular link maintenance. York mentions that what she does today is similar to what she did 30 years ago: collection development, cataloging or organizing, answering reference questions, writing guides, and teaching classes. Includes five screen displays.
