Getting Started with Government Documents
Government information can be an important contribution to your research. Government documents and reports can also be difficult to find. There isn't one way to search for and locate government information.
See CSU Libraries government information research guides:
- Some databases include links to online government documents. TreeSearch includes Forest Service publications, for example.
- Google advanced searches can be a useful way to locate more recent government documents. TIP: when searching Google, search using site:.gov after your search terms to find resources on government websites!
