Government Information on The Great American Eclipse (Free webinar)

Government Information on The Great American Eclipse (Free webinar)

This is a free webinar from the Federal Depository Library Program. 

  • Speaker: Linda Zellmer, Government Information & Data Services Librarian, Liaison to Physical & Natural Sciences & Agriculture, Western Illinois University
  • Learning outcomes: Have you heard about the Great American Eclipse? On Monday, August 21, 2017, many people in the United States will be able to view a partial or total solar eclipse. NASA is calling it the “Great American Eclipse,” because the path of totality, where the sun will be completely hidden by the Moon, starts near Pacific Palisades, Oregon and ends just north of Bulls Bay, South Carolina. The rest of the United States will see a partial solar eclipse, with the sun at least 50% obscured. It has been almost 100 years since the United States saw a similar eclipse. This webinar will survey the Government information available about the eclipse, including websites, maps, graphic materials, and publications.
  • Expected level of knowledge for participants: No prerequisite knowledge required
