MLA/GODORT Read (Docs!) Campaign

Government documents staff in Minnesota chose their favorite documents, grabbed a camera, and let loose their creativity. The results are the photos below, READ (Docs!). It's a new take on the American Library Association's (ALA) celebrity READ campaign using real people and real documents! The web pages were printed as posters for display at the 2003 Minnesota Library Association (MLA) Annual Conference.

Documents pictured will be found in Federal Depository Libraries across the nation.
