In honor of Halloween, take a look at some of Gleeson’s more unusual, “spooky” government documents.
In addition to the pamphlet pictured here, in which the United States Air Force put together Aids to Identification of Flying Objects, Gleeson Government Documents Print Collection also has materials on the Roswell Report. This document concerns a series of mysterious incidents in Roswell New Mexico in the Summer of 1947. Several people reported sighting unidentified flying objects and the alleged debris of extra-terrestrial beings. After the military claimed the debris was from a high-altitude surveillance balloon from a top-secret project and closed the case with its report, many people claimed it was just a government cover-up. What do you think? Take a closer look at the documents for more details!
Finding the fulltext of government funded research and news just got a lot easier! That’s because Gleeson Library|Geschke Center just added 438 U.S. government periodicals to Journal Finder. Just go to Journal Finder on the library’s homepage, type in the name of the government periodical (e.g., “Peace Watch”), and you’ll get a link to the issues that are available online.
Starting immediately the library’s catalog, Ignacio, will include records that link to online U.S. government documents that are not distributed in print. This is a critical new service for USF because the U.S. government is increasingly distributing information solely online, and discovering these documents can be very difficult without the help of a catalog.
The new online documents are from a wide variety of government agencies. Take a look at some of the new items we’ve added:
We hope you find this service useful. Special thanks goes to the Technical Services Department of Gleeson|Geschke for making this happen.
