Washington Information Directory 2015-2016



October 2015 | 1 024 pages | CQ Press
The Washington Information Directory (WID) is one of the most historically successful publications at CQ Press. Although it is a “directory,” it has lived in the Library/Annual Edition portfolio because it has a unique profile—it is topically organized, and within the taxonomic structure the relevant organizations are listed not only with contact information but with a brief paragraph describing what the organization (whether government or non-governmental) does related to that topic. It is focused on Washington—an organization must have an office in Washington to be listed. These descriptions are not boilerplate advertising material from the organizations; rather, they are hand-crafted by a talented free-lance research team led by Catherine Farley, who has been efficiently managing WID research for a number of years. In addition, WID pulls together more than 50 organization charts for federal agencies, congressional resources related to each chapter topic, hotline and contact information for various specific areas of interest (from Food Safety Resources to internships in Washington). It has two appendices, one with thorough information on Congress and the second with governors and embassies.  New in this edition will be a robust listing of Congressional caucuses and their respective phone numbers.
