  • For the Student:
    Researchers for a term paper or project will usually find something of value in annual reports, special reports, statistical reports, periodicals, census publications, special studies, which have been issued by the Presidents (since Washington), the Congresses (since the Continental), and the Agencies (since 1776). All of these sources provide a rich history of resources found in a documents collection.
  • And Much More:
    Remember, all the existing resources are waiting for your use and there is always something new coming out. Read government documents paid for by your tax dollars and be an informed citizen.
