Top Five Sources for Government-Produced Stats and Legal Stuff:

  • United Nations Data
    Best all-purpose source for global statistics, hands-down. Compiles data from international agencies and can be searched more easily than most statistical databases.
  • Thomas
    US-based. Search for Bills, Laws, and Resolutions; find out what's currently happening in Congress; read Committee Reports.
  • Legal Information
    US-based. From Cornell Law School. Great free resource for laws, major and recent court cases, fundamental documents like the Constitution.
  • Census Bureau Homepage
    US-based. Provides links to a wealth of data compiled by the Census Bureau. Amount of Census 2010 publicly available steadily increasing.
  • FDSys (Federal Digital System)
    The main website of the U.S. Government Printing Office. Use this if you're trying to find a very specific document, not if you're just looking into a topic.

For Visitors/General Public

Visiting researchers as well as the general public are welcome to use library collections, including government documents and resources.

In order to use the computers, including access to subscription databases that include government information (such as ProQuest Congressional) just check in at the front circulation desk on the main (3rd) floor when you arrive in order to get a username and password.
