United States Government Information

This U.S. government information guide is a starting point to connect those interested with agencies and institutions affiliated with publishing and providing support for shared information.


Search the library collection

You can search the Temple University Libraries Library Search for material using the search box below. You will be able to link to more recent documents directly from Library Search, but older documents can be accessed by selecting the Request link in the catalog (the print version can be ordered from the off-site Depository).

The Superintendent of Documents assigns a unique SuDoc classification number to each government document. Because the our government document collection is arranged in SuDoc number order, this number is needed to locate a document.

The staff at the library ask desk will also assist you in finding the SuDoc number for a U.S. government document.

***Any Item listed as "In Library" in the Government Documents Collection is now housed at the off-site Depository.
