Gale, part of Cengage Learning, today announced MyGovernment™, an online subscription-based resource that provides information on United States elected officials, candidates and their key issues, and information on how our government functions. It is produced by KnowWho, Inc. and distributed by Gale to the library market.

MyGovernment™ enables users to locate, research and contact their elected officials, as well as access background and biographical data, committee assignments, photos, news articles and campaign contribution sources. It also includes a basic guide to U.S. government – including how laws are made in Congress, information on becoming a U.S. citizen, voter information, useful links and websites for additional information and more.
