BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Government and non-profit agencies needing federal information can receive help this fall from University at Buffalo students.

Graduates students enrolled in the "Government Information" course in the UB School of Information and Library Studies will compile federal information packages for clients, identifying federal web sites, publications, computer databases and audiovisuals related to any broad topic.

Clients of the service must be available to consult with their student researcher during the fall semester and return a written evaluation after submission of the search in late November.

The number of searches to be performed is limited by class size. Search requests must be received before Aug. 25.

To submit a request, send a description of the search topic, with the client's name, agency name, address and telephone number to Judith Robinson, associate professor of information and library studies, at 534 Baldy Hall, University at Buffalo, Buffalo, N.Y., 14260.

Clients also may e-mail Robinson at lisrobin@acsu.buffalo.edu
