Where to find information

Where to find information is a guide produced for the general population "a simple and basic road map to find their way through the information maze." It is 46 pages long, compiled by Derek Kinrade and Philip Wark, and illustrated by Chris Bazeley. It is published by the National Information Forum in association with The Community Services Group Information Literacy Group of The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. The guide is being made freely available to UK libraries for issue to readers, but otherwise costs £2.99 plus post and packing from National Information Forum, PP905, BT Burne House, Bell Street, London NW1 5BZ, UK.

I must confess that I was not aware of the National Information Forum, however I obviously should have been. It is "a voluntary organisation committed to encouraging the provision of information to those disadvantaged by lack of information, including disabled people, ethnic minorities, refugees, young people leaving care or custody, gypsies and travellers."
