Boatwright's Policy for Public Access to Government Information

About this Guide

This guide contains information and links for accessing U.S. Government information.

Here you'll find links to government information from a variety of sources:

  • Official websites of government agencies and the Government Printing Office (GPO).
  • Print government documents collections at UR. Boatwright Library (Depository #0635; located on Boatwright Level B2) and the Muse Law Library (Depository #0635B) are part of the Federal Depository Library Program. You will find most of our government documents in the Library Catalog and specific titles linked from this guide. 
  • Commercial sources that the library subscribes to. These content providers repackage government information, usually with the purpose of making it easier to find or use, and license access to libraries and other subscribers.
  • Some non-profit organizations and think tanks also provide access to government publications.
