- The Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) is a dynamic forum where information professionals learn, discuss, advocate, and create scholarship on and about government information at all levels of government (local, state, national, international).
GODORT began as the Task Force on Government Publications of the Social Responsibilities Round Table, the first round table in ALA; it became a separate round table in 1972. Further information about GODORT's first 30 years can be found in A History of the Government Documents Round Table of the American Library Association. This publication is in two parts: the original history by Lois Mills covers 1972-92, while the second part, covering 1992-2002, was written by Larry Romans and Sandy Peterson, with contributions by many GODORT members.
