The purposes of the Government Documents Round Table are to:

  • provide a forum for the discussion of problems and concerns and for the exchange of ideas by librarians working with government documents,
  • provide a nexus for initiating and supporting programs to increase the availability, use and bibliographic control of documents,
  • increase communication between documents librarians and the larger community of information professionals, and
  • contribute to the education and training of documents librarians

Any member of ALA may elect to become a personal member of GODORT by paying the Round Table's annual dues. Only Round Table members who are personal members of ALA receive the right to vote and hold office. ALA and GODORT offer special membership rates for library school students.
