AALL believes that federal, state, and local governments should provide a universal citation for government information that it disseminates for citizen use. A universal (or public domain) citation system is both medium and vendor neutral. AALL recommends that federal, state, and local governments should adopt AALL's universal citation formats, as illustrated in the
