Blue Book Politics
Is the Tennessee Blue Book just obsolete
Therein lies the rub where the Blue Book is concerned. In our own day an age, everything that can be found in its pages is now available online, and that includes the entire 2009-2010 Tennessee Blue Book, which is the latest edition. As long as there are significant numbers of people in Tennessee who do not have a way to access government information via the internet, the State will need to print copies of the Blue Book to make available. However, in the years ahead digital information will likely become even more widely available than it is now, and the State will likely find that it is cheaper to maintain the Blue Book online and digitize State Blue Book archives than it will be to print the book in large numbers.
