Described as "an asset to the reference collection of every library" by American Reference Books Annual, the Washington Information Directory provides the most accurate information available. The directory can be used to locate groups and organizations involved with health care, contact a U.S. representative or senator, find an official at a national or international organization, research internships and opportunities to get involved in local or national politics, and much more. With more than 10,000 entries, Washington Information Directory 2010–2011 offers:

  • information on new agencies, posts, and other sources of assistance created in response to the financial crisis, such as the Real Estate Assessment Center within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the MakingHomeAffordable Web site
