GPO Access Online Resources: A-Z Resource List
Government Printing Office (2007, April 24). GPO Access Online Resources: A-Z Resource List. Retrieved April 26, 2007, from http://www.gpoaccess.gov/databases.html
The purpose of this resource is to index and link to government documents that are available online from various government agencies. It has been produced for anyone who is needing to locate government documents online.
The index is produced by the Government Printing Office (GPO), the body responsible for printing all (federal) government documents. It is frequently updated, and was last updated April 24, 2007.
In order for users to access these documents, they will need a computer, as well as a PDF reader application, such as Adobe Reader, for reading many of the documents indexed here.
The resource is formatted as a list, with documents listed being linked to their various locations on the Internet.
The list is arranged alphabetically.
The entries themselves are links to the actual government document located on various agency websites.
No special features are available with this resource. It is a straight-forward index and linking resource.
This resource can be used to locate government documents that are available online.
The only real criticism I have of this resource is that list is not exhaustive, but when government information is being produced by the millions of pages each day, and thousands of links are created to these documents, one cannot expect a complete online government document index to ever be created.
