US Government Documents: Federal Documents

Overview of Federal Documents

Federal documents consist of the publications produced by the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of the U.S. government. For further information on finding and using U.S. federal government documents, see this extensive guide at the University of Washington. You can search for federal documents online using GovInfo or the Catalog of US Government Publications. Documents in the Basic Collection below are those that every selective depository library must make available; additional foundational documents of the U.S. government may be found on the Federal Depository Library Program page .
