Google UncleSam Gone

June 12, 2011

In case you missed the non-announcement Google has stopped supporting the Google UncleSam (or U.S. Government Search). I’ve created a custom search that limits to .gov, .mil and .state sites which will mimic in part the Google UncleSam search.

Try it out:
http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=006444040023968439261:ynbxyjszbmq

There is a search box called U.S. and State Government Search in several of my LibGuides. Try it out by going to the Comm 1000 Libguide — the search box is in the first column. Contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Websites: Data.gov

October 6, 2009

data.govStep aside Fedstats.gov. Looking for something a little more intuitive for your governmental data needs, well you soon will need to look no further than Data.gov.  You can get to the data in three ways: through the “raw” data catalog, the tool catalog and the geodata catalog.  Currently limited in scope, Data.gov encourages suggestions as to what should be included and also provides access the those state and local governments who already have data pages. Data.gov currently catalogs over 300 data and informational sites. Many have data extraction capabilities like the Recreation Information Database, and some only RSS subscriptions like the White House Special Feature Video Pieces feed.
