The United States Government is the largest publisher of information in the world. Its many agencies and departments routinely distribute data in the forms of reports and annual publications.
Nearly all United States government and quasi-governmental agencies provide information on the World Wide Web. The nature of the information and its format varies by agency. You can expect to find the mission and policies of the agency, its director, and other contact persons.
United States Government publications are classified by the Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) Classification System. The SuDoc system groups publications by government author. Government authors are federal departments, bureaus or agencies of the United States.
