GOVINFO website launched

Govinfo is the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s (GPO) new website that was just launched! It provides a user-friendly navigation system accessible on smartphones, tablets and computers. GPO receives information from Federal agencies and organizations in all three branches of the Federal Government. This new website is currently in beta but will be replacing the GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) in 2017.

Some of the nice features of this website, other than it being mobile-friendly optimized, include an alphabetical list of collections, a date or date range search, quick links to popular publications, related documents, and shareable social media content.

Wondering what’s in Govinfo? Well about 1.5 million titles! Some of the collections that these titles are in include:

  • The Congressional Record
  • Federal Register
  • Congressional Calendars, Hearings, Reports
  • Bills
  • The U.S. Code
  • Code of Federal Regulations
  • U.S. Courts Opinions
  • The Federal Budget

Check this great resource out (especially on your mobile device) – it’s really easy to use!
