James R. Jacobs, U.S. Government Information Librarian, has recently contributed a chapter to a forthcoming volume titled Public Knowledge: Access and Benefits (Medford, NJ: Information Today, 2016).

As the publisher notes, the edited volume is the "first book in years to explore trends and issues for researchers and organizations that rely on U.S. public information."
