School of Government’s Popular Government ceases publication!

The UNC School of Government has decided to stop publishing its longtime journal, Popular Government. According to their website, “As part of its ongoing efforts to share information with public officials and others in the most effective ways possible, the School of Government is exploring alternative forms of exchanging valuable resources and disseminating content.” Archived issues of Popular Government will be available, free of charge, at the UNC School of Government’s website.  Click here to check out the archive.  We’ve just received copies of the last issue - Fall 2009, so please drop by the LOB Library if you’d like to take a look at the final issue in print.
