How can I access Government information online?
There are a few different ways to find government information (documents, websites, data, etc.) online.
If you are looking for government publications, such as regulations, bills, hearings and more, try Govinfo. It provides free public access to official publications from all three branches of the Federal Government such as: the Congressional Record, congressional publications of all kinds, the Federal Register, Code of Federal Regulations, Supreme Court decisions, executive branch documents and more.
USA.gov is another way to find government documents, reports and websites. You can enter keywords on the homepage to search a wide range of agencies at once.
Or, to target publications from a particular government agency (USDA, Census Bureau, CDC etc.), visit USA.gov's List of Government Agencies.
For additional search tricks, explore the library’s Government Documents Research Guide.
