Informational Almanacs

Informational almanacs are basic general almanacs. They depend heavily on government sources for statistical information. They follow the same pattern of subject matter published every year with revised statistics. They cost low and many of the libraries acquire them for their reference section. They are also purchased by the students and common people to enrich their general knowledge and prepare for competitive examinations.
