Notable Government Documents 2011


Each year, the Notable Documents Panel of the American Library Association’s Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) selects government publications to promote awareness and acquisition of government publications by libraries and use by library patrons. Its aim is to recognize excellence in government publications, identify documents of distinction, and commend individual works of superlative nature.

The Panel selected the EMCDDA Manual on the European Drug Prevention Quality Standards for inclusion in its list of Notable Government Documents 2011 (category “International Documents”), stating:

“This manual—the work of dozens of experts in the field—provides the first European framework on effective drug abuse prevention. It outlines planning, implementation, and evaluation of prevention and aids the understanding of how people, interventions, organizations, and strategies contribute to positive outcomes. Though substance abuse prevention professionals are the intended audience, anyone studying this phenomenon will want to consult this well-documented source. With an attractive layout, clear prose, and a superb glossary.” (source)
