Federal Government Documents Tutorial

Web sites

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Internet sites for federal government information.  Here are a few references to help you locate electronic data from specific agencies.

Comprehensive agency lists:

 
University of Michigan's Documents Center
maintains a suite of pages with links to federal, foreign, international, state, and local documents.  The links here are also organized by subjects.
Uncle Sam - Government Publications Department
maintains a page that includes links to resources that list government departments and agencies by agency name, title of publication, subject, and various gateways and databases.
Congress/GPO:
THOMAS -- U.S. Congress on the Internet
"In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson, a service of the Library of Congress" containing legislative information on the Internet.  Thomas provides access to the full texts of most of the documents created during the legislative process:  bills, reports, Congressional Record, public laws.  Dates of coverage vary between files; some go as far back as 1973- 74, the 93th Congress.
GPO Access
"The U.S. Government Printing Office disseminates official information from all three branches of the Federal Government," legislative, executive, and judicial.
Statistics:
Fedstats
is "the gateway to statistics from over 100 U.S. Federal agencies"
