Librarian-curated guide for finding and using Government Documents
The Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP) is the finding tool for electronic and print publications from the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of the U.S. government. The CGP contains descriptive records for historical and current publications and provides direct links to those that are available online. More than 500,000 records (dating back to July 1976) are contained in the CGP, and it is updated daily.
Since its establishment in 1914, the Public Affairs Information Service (PAIS) has chronicled issues in the public debate through highly selective coverage of a wide variety of sources. The PAIS International database with the PAIS Archive provide historical perspective on many of the 20th century's public and social policies. US federal documents are among the types of publications indexed by this database. When searching in the database, make sure to select "Government & Official Document" under "Document Type"
