PURPOSE

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.

AUTHORITY

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.

SCOPE

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.

FORMAT

The resource is formatted as a list, with documents listed being linked to their various locations on the Internet.

ARRANGEMENT

The list is arranged alphabetically.

ENTRIES

The entries themselves are links to the actual government document located on various agency websites.

SPECIAL FEATURES

No special features are available with this resource. It is a straight-forward index and linking resource.

USE

This resource can be used to locate government documents that are available online.

CRITIQUE

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.
