For 30 years the Washington Information Directory (WID) has been the essential one-stop source for U.S. governmental and non-governmental organizations. WID provides citizens with capsule descriptions that let them quickly and easily find the right person at the right organization. Using WID for a search is like having an informed, trustworthy guide at your side who gives you up-to-date information on where to go and whom to talk to in large organizations to get your tasks accomplished quickly and competently. It is a resource that reminds patrons of public, academic, and professional libraries why specialized guides such as WID continue to be a better fit than the Internet for certain reference needs. WID helps you find: People and answers in newly reorganized departments; Contacts for international disaster relief organizations; Groups to consult about civil liberties; Addresses for your U.S. representatives and senators; Resources for older adults; Groups to consult about tort reform; and Information on federal grants and contracts. WID provides contacts for: Congress and federal agencies; Governors and other state officials; U.S. and foreign diplomats; Nongovernmental organizations; and Policy groups, foundations, and institutions.
